      Pre Flop: ($0.24) Hero is UTG with T:diamond: A:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.48, 3 folds, BB calls $0.32

      Flop: ($1.04) T:spade: 2:club: T:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB raises to $1.84, Hero calls $1.04

      I call to keep his bluffs in. Dont think he calls raise with a big part of his range

      Turn: ($4.72) J:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $2.24, Hero calls $2.24

      The bet is small so i call to reevaluate on the river.

      River: ($9.20) 7:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.70, BB calls $1.70

      He cheks and i think i am good there, but he doesnt have a strong hand so i bet small there.

      Flop: I think flatting here should be your default play. If you think he is rarely bluffing here then I prefer to 3bet flop and get it in and cooler him.

      Turn: Definitely calling here again.

      River: Question is whether we have any value in a bet or not. can he show up with worse hands and c/c you? I don't think he has QQ+ here very often. I don't think he c/c river with 99 or 88. How often would he take this line with a hand like AJ/KJ? Does he c/c River with worse TX hands? What is your plan vs a river check/raise?

      Don't bet unless you think you can answer all these questions. Try answering them and I will go through your reasoning.
