      CO: $1.90 (95 bb)
      BTN: $0.77 (38.5 bb)
      SB: $1.60 (80 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.12 (106 bb)
      UTG: $2.41 (120.5 bb)
      MP: $0.71 (35.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q 8
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.07) 8 6 4 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks, CO bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, MP folds

      Turn: ($0.15) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, CO raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.10

      River: ($0.55) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.10, Hero folds

      Where are all these diamonds when I play AKdd in a 3bet pot? :)

      Anyway, the villain is unknown, but the stack and nickname imply fishiness.

      I don't really know. It seems like we are flipping here on the turn, he migh have an Ad or a Kd, but he might also have Jd, Td, and 9d, especially if he's a fish.

      All in all, is the turn line okay? It seems a bit weird to call...I would push or fold in most cases, but I don't feel comfortable neither pushing nor folding here with a Qd.

      I assume that it's safer to fold the river, yup? (ten is out, so we are definitely flipping at best)

      Preflop checking is fine.

      On the flop I don't really like check/calling so I'd rather bet myself here.
      The other option of course is check/fold.

      As played on the flop, I'd check/call the turn.
      When he raises I like calling and reevaluating the river.

      Folding river is fine. I think we are beat hear all of the time.
