      MP3: $1.98 (39.6 bb)
      CO: $12.33 (246.6 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $3.56 (71.2 bb)
      BB: $5.77 (115.4 bb)
      MP1: $3.52 (70.4 bb) VPIP:29, PFR:9, AF:1.6, WTSD:16, F to cbet:67(12), F to tcbet:0(3), hands:146
      MP2: $5.07 (101.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K 8
      MP1 calls $0.05, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.47) T J A (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.30, MP1 calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.07) 4 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.60, MP1 calls $0.60

      River: ($2.27) 7 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks

      Would you check behind T? Villain is not folding anything that called F but I have a good draw, so went for smaller cbet sizing.
      What about bet sizes?

      If you think villain is not folding anything that calls flop, semi-bluffing turn does not make sense despite your good equity. It is the fold-equity that makes a second barrel profitable in these spots. Against calling stations it is fine to check back turn and hope to hit river.

      Normally I may bet a little smaller on flop if was planning to 2nd barrel, and a little larger if I was going to fire just one. Turn sizing could be a little bigger because currently you still need to overbet river to get the stacks in. You want villain to have less < potsizebet so it's easier to get the stacks in if you hit.
