      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:heart: , 8:spade:
      SB posts small blind ($0.02), Hero posts big blind ($0.05), 2 folds, MP2 raises for $0.10, 4 folds, Hero calls

      Flop: ($0.22 - 4.40 bb) A:club: , 4:spade: , 4:diamond: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks

      Turn: ($0.22 - 4.40 bb) A:heart: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.15, MP2 raises for $0.30, Hero calls

      River: ($0.82 - 16.40 bb) T:heart: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.85, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled back ($0.85)


      MP2 was 19/9/6 over 56.

      Preflop: calling for set value.

      Flop: planning to c/f.

      Turn: leading out to protect vs broadways and get value from lower PPs. When raised should be an easy fold.
      In retrospect I could c/c turn rather than lead out because a bigger part of his range is still stronger than my hand.

      River: folding after failing to find a fold button on the turn.

      Here are some questions to think about

      What kind of player is villain? 19/9 - Is he passive, aggro or in-between?

      Flop: What do you think villain has when he checks? Is the Flop good for bluffing? Would he not bluff the Flop?

      Turn: You have a made hand here with significant amounts of showdown value so I don't like bluffing with it. Now think about whether you can value bet the Turn.
      Do you think there is value in a Turn bet? Do you expect to get called by worse hands on average?

      When you get raised, it's a snap/fold and it's not close, but I think the questions I have typed out above are more important and should help you understand the best line.
