      Hero (BB): $6.34 (126.8 bb)
      UTG: $5.53 (110.6 bb)
      MP: $7.02 (140.4 bb)
      CO: $9 (180 bb)
      BTN: $2.50 (50 bb)
      SB: $2.87 (57.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T T
      UTG raises to $0.15, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) J T 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($0.32) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, UTG calls $0.25

      River: ($0.82) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.55, UTG calls $0.55

      Results:
      $1.92 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: J T 5 A 2
      Hero mucked T T and won $1.83 ($0.88 net)
      UTG showed A Q and lost (-$0.95 net)


      Villain is 16/14/4 over 74 hands.

      PF: Villain has a strong range on UTG even though it's just 74 hands. I call to keep pot small and setmine.

      Flop: It is a pretty wet board, I reckon this Flop pretty much hits Villain's range. He can have TP or Middle Pair and also SD & FD. I decided to X/R.

      Turn: As played, no c-bet from Villain and when the Ad comes, it seems even more like it hit Villain's range thus I bet for value.

      River: Again, bet for value.

      Question: Against this wet Flop where I believe Villain probably will bet any pair and any draws, is it okay for me to play X/R and risk giving a free card?

      Hello,

      Preflop calling is the best option here.

      Checking the flop with the intention to check/raise is good here. If he checks back he probably don't have much equity against our hand so we aren't really afraid to give a free card.

      I like your turn bet here. The board is very drawy and we now want value from all the draws and weaker hands.

      On the river your bet is good.

      Nice hand!

      Best,
      Plamen
