      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BB: $1.72 (86 bb)
      UTG+1: $2.07 (103.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $0.97 (48.5 bb)
      MP1: $2.37 (118.5 bb)
      MP2: $1.43 (71.5 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $2.05 (102.5 bb)
      CO: $1.84 (92 bb)
      BTN: $1.82 (91 bb)
      SB: $2.94 (147 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 9 8
      UTG+1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.02, 3 folds, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.07) 8 7 T (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.03, Hero calls $0.03, BB folds

      Turn: ($0.13) 7 (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06

      River: ($0.25) 4 (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.12, Hero folds

      Preflop: Opp is 26/13. I'm in between overlimping and isolating, mostly because of my lack of experience. I've decided I'll ply it pasively.
      Flop: Less then 1/2 pot bet gives me more than enough pot odds to call with pair+OESD
      Turn: Now I have like 1K outs so it's not hard to call, but I'm not sure should I raise here. If I had all those draws on flop I would try to go all-in since theres 2 cards to come, but now only 1 card is comming so I think it's maybe better to just call.
      River: I think my 2nd pair is not enough to call even 1/2 pot. Is that wrong?

      Hi Oly,

      Preflop: With just one limper we should look to isloate here. We want to be able to have initiative and even play HU with villain.

      Postflop: As played your postflop play is fine. We can't really raise the flop or turn so calling down and folding river is fine.

      The only mistake I see is playing preflop passively.
