      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A J
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, 2 folds

      I thought about raising pre but only had a few hands on villain and he seemed relatively tight.

      Flop: ($0.37) 8 6 K (2 players)
      CO bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.77) Q (2 players)
      CO bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35

      Turn i debated about folding as the queen hits more of his hands, but his bet sizing made me call as it looked weak

      River: ($1.47) 2 (2 players)
      CO bets $0.70, Hero folds

      if he hadn't have bet i would have probably made it $1

      Hi DrRaab,

      Preflop: His stack size indicates a potential weaker opponent so we can consider 3-betting for value to something like 40c.

      Postflop: As played why would we fold the turn when we get 25% pot odds and have 3 outs for a gutshot and 9 for a flush, effectively giving us about 25% equity (not counting the A)?

      The only question should be if we call or raise the turn and given his small bet I would prefer raising the turn there because his hand looks weak.
