      Hero (MP): $5.65 (113 bb)
      CO: $4.60 (92 bb)
      BTN: $1.30 (26 bb)
      SB: $9.58 (191.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 4 4
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) J A T (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($0.47) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, CO calls $0.30

      River: ($1.07) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.80, Hero folds

      Results:
      $1.07 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: J A T 2 K
      Hero mucked 4 4 and lost (-$0.50 net)
      CO mucked and won $1.02 ($0.52 net)


      SB ( $4.60 USD ) - VPIP: 57, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 3.0, Hands: 7

      Did not use fold to c-bet stat as sample is too small.

      PF: Standard

      Flop: Don't think I want to c-bet this connected high flop

      Turn: Villain checks twice to me, elected to do a delayed c-bet. Should I have done so?

      River: K sucks, if he's drawing, the K will definitely help him hit his Kx, 2p, or his Qx hits a straight so elected to x/f. I will also x/f if a blank comes, don't think he will fold even Tx here.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      Postflop I would just try to check this down.
      No need to bet the turn here - we can't get called by worse, neither make better to fold, so just check and hope to get to showdown here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi Coach,

      I think when he checks behind, he probably doesn't have an Ace or Jack.

      My reason for betting on Turn was to make better hands like 55-99, and some Tx other than TJ-AT fold.

      I think he can check back some Ax/Jx on the flop as well.
      Also, as we played on the flop Tx is never folding against one bet, and 55-99 could end up calling as well and those aren't too much combos to justify a bet here.
