      CO: $9.71 (194.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T 9
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.05, 3 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.12) J 6 T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, MP calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.32) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, MP calls $0.20

      River: ($0.72) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $0.25, Hero folds

      $0.72 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: J 6 T 3 3
      Hero mucked T 9 and lost (-$0.35 net)
      MP mucked and won $0.69 ($0.34 net)

      Raise preflop? Getting 4:1 pot odds on the river. Do you think he could bet missed OESD/gutshot? Otherwise I see only T7, T8 from worse hands that could bet. Getting equity needed to call ony if he has some straight draws in his range.

      Hi KoosMaras,

      Preflop: looks fine, we can't really isolate T9o OOp vs unknown fish.

      Postflop: I think that both our flop and turn bets are very thin because we lose to most 2nd pair and of course TP+. While villain can have some draws there aren't many and we would need him to call 3rd pair to show a profit here.

      As played I'd fold the river as well.
