      River: ($0.78 - 39 bb) 5:diamond: (2 Players)
      SB bets $0.80, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled back ($0.80)


      Preflop: stealing.

      Flop: don't know why I called, found it hard to fold vs minb :) I probably should raise/fold the flop.
      Turn: I picked up TP and decided to raise/fold for value and protection. I think I could be called by many draws and maybe a Tx who doesn't believe me. My plan was to get a free check on the river.
      River: pot size bet and FD completes, easy fold.

      Do you think my turn raise was appropriate or should I just call in this spot?

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that we are better off raise/folding or just folding the flop. Our equity is poor and I rather take the pot down now if I can.

      As played I agree with both of your turn and river plays.
