      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      Hero (BB): $4 (100 bb)
      MP: $1.87 (46.8 bb)
      CO: $3.37 (84.3 bb)
      BTN: $5.50 (137.5 bb)
      SB: $1.25 (31.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7 6
      2 folds, BTN calls $0.04, SB folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.10) 5 4 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.42) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($0.42) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.48, BTN folds

      Missed the flop, but I was chasing straight draw. So I called and ready to chk/fold on the turn.

      Instead he gave free card, then I took the stab by adding pressure to him. Quite rare to bluff on this level.

      What would you consider if you're on BB and had this position?

      Hi D3vin,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I rather bet/fold than ck/call on these board. Our hand is weak and our outs are not great.

      As played we don't need to bet that big on the river. 0.3 should be good enough.
