      All of these players are unknown.

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with 9 :diamond: 9 :spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.42) 7 :spade: 4 :spade: 5 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.60, CO calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.62) 7 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, CO raises to $1, Hero calls $0.50

      River: ($3.62) 3 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      PF: The CO raises to 4BB, it's more likely he has a stronger range here, top pairs and high cards. I call hoping to hit the set and stack him.

      F: I don't want to bet and get raised by his possible overcards and flush draws so I opt to check/raise and assume that he will go all-in with hands which beat me so I can comfortably fold.

      T: He calls and I opt to get thin value vs. the overcards and flush draws also blocking him from making a larger bet.

      He min-raises, I'm unsure what to make of this so I just opt to call.

      R: I decide I'll call a small bet if he bets the river but we get to see showdown for free.

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Well, you underbet the turn. Why exactly do you bet less than 1/3 pot there?

      Why not bet a more normal bet that doesn't leave room for guessing if he were to raise?
