      Hero (BTN): $2.06 (103 bb)
      SB: $1.01 (50.5 bb)
      BB: $1.67 (83.5 bb)
      UTG: $2.08 (104 bb)
      MP: $0.83 (41.5 bb)
      CO: $10.07 (503.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T J
      UTG raises to $0.04, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.14, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.31) 5 Q 2 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.31) 8 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.31) 6 (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.26, Hero folds

      $0.31 pot ($0.01 rake)
      Final Board: 5 Q 2 8 6
      Hero mucked T J and lost (-$0.14 net)
      UTG mucked and won $0.30 ($0.16 net)

      Villain is 30/20/0 over 10 hands, A.F 0.

      PF: I 3-bet bluff vs Villain

      Flop: It is quite dry. But when Villain calls my 3-bet, I put him on medium pocket pairs like 88-JJ, AK/AQ. I think he will call my c-bet with only a Q high Flop at least once.

      I think if I were to c-bet, I need to barrel at least one more time if he calls it. And I'm not really ready for it. And I only have a backdoor straight, no diamond.

      Is it played okay?

      Hi cheekopeh,

      I think that with position we can still attempt to take this pot down with a 1/2 pot cbet.

      A 1/2 pot cbet only has to work 33% of the time and we have a few high cards we can barrel.
