      MP: $2.65 (132.5 bb)
      CO: $2.03 (101.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $4.54 (227 bb)
      SB: $3.44 (172 bb)
      BB: $4 (200 bb)
      UTG: $0.77 (38.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J J
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.18) 7 6 9 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.06, BB calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, BB calls $0.24

      I needed protection against such a wet board

      Turn: ($0.84) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      This was an instant check. I have noticed that most players here play draws aggressively and check raise made hands or nuts. Should I have bet folded here?

      River: ($0.84) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.40, Hero folds

      I think I was beat here

      Preflop is fine of course.

      On the flop I like raising here. You could even go for like $0.4 here - there are a lot of worse made hands to call here and hands like pair + draw.

      I think that checking back the turn is good here. Quite a few two pair out there, 8x got the straight also and overall I doubt that we are going to get called here by worse if we bet.

      As played, I think the river is a fold. I don't think he'd bet with worse here.
