      Hero wins $3.79 (net +$1.18)

      BTN lost $0.02
      SB lost $1.25

      I'll explain my thought process, just check if I thought of it in the right way.

      Preflop: Check or fold was ticked but no one raised so I am still in the hand.

      Flop: 2 pair, good so far, and SB bets small to take down pot or just to prevent me from betting big, but I overbet to protect because of flush board.

      Turn: Same small bet from SB, for me I think he maybe has something or does not want me to bet big, so I bet big for value / protection.

      River: Well once he checks, I know i am ahead so I shove.

      Pre-flop: you could Isolate against normal opponnents, but when BU is so short, I don't mind checking.

      Flop: you could even bet bigger against him, he looks weak but usually those guys will call bigger raises, too, or just fold right away. You can raise to 0.14 to build up pot.

      Turn: Again, bigger. As played, I'd raise to 0.36 or so. If he raises, I'm most likely going on with the hand.

      River: He is representing weak, and these guys usually donk big when they hit to nuts. Definitely you can overbet, if he has high wtsd or so.

      Hello,

      Preflop checking is fine.

      On the flop we could even go for a bigger raise here - like $0.14 since the board is quite drawy here.

      As played, raise a little bit more to have a less than pot size bet on the river.

      The river doesn't change much so shoving here is fine.

      Best,
