      Full Tilt, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, Rush, 6 Players

      MP: $26.45 (105.8 bb)
      Hero (CO): $35.65 (142.6 bb)
      BTN: $24.90 (99.6 bb)
      SB: $7.42 (29.7 bb)
      BB: $22.58 (90.3 bb)
      UTG: $31.23 (124.9 bb) unknown

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J A
      UTG raises to $0.50, MP folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 3 folds, UTG calls $1

      Flop: ($3.35) T 8 T (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.80, UTG calls $1.80

      Turn: ($6.95) A (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($6.95) 9 (2 players)
      UTG bets $3, Hero calls $3

      $12.95 pot ($0.64 rake)
      Final Board: T 8 T A 9
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$6.30 net)
      UTG showed T A and won $12.31 ($6.01 net)

      Pre: Usually I don't raise AJ against UTG because I just isolate myself against hands that dominate me. But his small bet size looks fishy so on this occasion I am just trying to get heads up with him fairly cheaply.

      Flop: Cbet size? I usually do around 1/2 pot in 3bet pot which technically this is, but it's quite a "small" 3bet pot so maybe do like $2.20?

      Turn: I don't think villain will call a 2nd barrel with many hands that I beat (I don't think he calls small PPs again when the A hits, and I don't think he called flop with A7-), so I go for pot control / bluffcatch.

      River: as planned. If he had checked to me again, I would bet/fold 1/2 pot here.
