      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: $13.06
      Hero (BB): $21.83
      UTG: $8.92 46/32, 59 hands
      CO: $5.21
      BTN: $10.00

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has T:diamond: 9:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65, 2 players) 7:diamond: 4:club: T:club:
      Hero bets $0.46, UTG calls $0.46

      Turn: ($1.57, 2 players) A:heart:
      Hero bets $1.30, UTG calls $1.30

      River: ($4.17, 2 players) 4:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $2.97, fold

      UTG wins $3.97

      Villain looks fishy but in this case UTG opening gives a feeling that the hand has some strength.
      fold to 3bet is low (20%), so I do have better equity to just call from BB.

      On such a flop the plan is to extract value from villains range that most likely has missed it. So I decide to bet bet chk/call if no scare cards show up.

      Turn unfortunately brings an A and turn Cbet gets called. I assume he floats Ax therfore I am beat on turn.

      river bet looks like a value bet so I fold.

      Hey ilioas,

      Preflop defend usually won't be profitable here. You are OOP + villain does not have a full stack

      On the flop, not sure I fully get your logic - "On such a flop the plan is to extract value from villains range that most likely has missed it." Isn't the way you extract value from villain's range that missed, by check-calling?

      Betting might be ok if you think villain is a huge fish and going to call with 66 or KJo, but the standard play here is probably to check. Yes, check/calling oop isn't super fantastic either, but that's why you don't really want to call preflop OOP with a SC.

      Turn, I'd just check fold, you are basically turning your hand into a bluff by betting here. If you were betting the flop because villain calls really wide, you don't want to turn your hand into a bluff vs the same opponent.

      River check/fold is fine imo, but I'd have played the hand a lot different to this.
