      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP: $6.63
      Hero (CO): $13.35
      BTN: $10.00
      SB: $2.09
      BB: $7.04
      UTG: $6.40

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:spade: T:heart:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.20, 4 players) 7:diamond: Q:heart: 2:diamond:
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.70, fold, fold, BB calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.60, 2 players) 3:club:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.60, 2 players) Q:club:
      BB bets $1.20, Hero raises to $3.00, fold

      Hero wins $4.75

      Villain is "aggressive" (taking stabs with busted draws is not that aggressive) enough to bet busted draw. On the river he bets small and he has less Qx hands when the Q hits. So i decide to raise small and fold the draws.

      Hi Deomedes,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why do we want him to fold the draws?

      Don't we beat almost every single one except a rare AJ?

      You are welcome.

      You can improve this aspect of your game by always asking yourself what exactly you are looking to fold (so you can list a few hands within that range).
