      MP: $2.03 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $2.56 (128 bb)
      BTN: $1.15 (57.5 bb)
      SB: $2.69 (134.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $4.20 (210 bb)
      UTG: $1.06 (53 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5 7
      3 folds, BTN calls $0.02, SB folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.05) 7 6 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.04, BTN calls $0.04

      Turn: ($0.13) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BTN calls $0.08

      River: ($0.29) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      What? Fold flop! Why did I even thought of it? Especially when the villain is a fish (surprise!).

      I shouldn't even try inflating the pot with such a "strong" TP (even though I have a crappy gutshot on a FD board), should I?

      Preflop checking is fine.

      I like leading the flop here with top pair.

      Turn brings some other draws, and we could get called by worse so betting is fine.

      River is another bad card, so I don't think we can take any value from worse here, so I'd give up.
