      BTN: $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $3.36 (168 bb)
      BB: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $2.69 (134.5 bb)
      MP: $1 (50 bb)
      CO: $1.55 (77.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with T T
      Hero raises to $0.06, MP folds, CO calls $0.06, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.15) 9 7 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, CO calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.35) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.26, Hero folds

      $0.35 pot ($0.01 rake)
      Final Board: 9 7 5 5
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$0.16 net)
      CO mucked and won $0.34 ($0.18 net)

      Villain is unknown w weird stack size.

      PF: Open for value

      Flop: C-bet for value vs his 9x, FD & Ax hands.

      Turn: The board pairs and 3rd diamond hits. I decided to play cautiously w my hand and x to see what he does.

      He bets quite big and he only has $1.13 left behind on the River and the pot will be $0.87. He can easily shove on the River which is a nasty spot for me. So I opted the passive route and folded.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop cbet is fine but could be larger.

      I don't like check/folding against an unknown here. I much more prefer to bet/fold as we still have value from 9x, some 88/66 and random Ad in his range.

      Plus he can also have floats here that are trying to take the pot away from us.
