      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $95.10
      UTG+1: $19.25
      CO: $52.64
      Button: $20.98
      Hero: $64
      BB: $48.75

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is SB with T:club: 8:club:
      UTG calls, 2 folds, Button calls, Hero calls, BB checks.

      Flop: 2:diamond: 9:spade: T:diamond: ($2, 4 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $1.75[/color], BB folds, UTG calls, Button folds.

      Turn: 3:spade: ($5.5, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $4[/color], UTG calls.

      I think UTG was drawing on the flop, because any kind of made hand would want to raise with all those draws on board

      River: 6:heart: ($13.5, 2 players)
      Hero checks, [color:#cc0000]UTG bets $6.75[/color], Hero calls.

      I go for a check call, because if he's drawing and missed he's not going to call a bet anyways, but he may make a steal bluff. Also the 6 only completes a draw for 78. Is it ok to call this bet on the river?

      I think you played that hand fine. UTG should re-raise two pair or better on the flop. Turn he could also have middle pp, so betting again is not mistake+ board is also drawy.
      I like river c/c. Hard him to call three streets with worse hand and this way he can bet out with busted draws.
