      BB: $2.33 (23.3 bb)
      UTG: $10.41 (104.1 bb)
      MP: $5.58 (55.8 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $4.57 (45.7 bb)
      SB: $7.44 (74.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T T
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 6 Q 7 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.95) 5 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $1.08, MP calls $1.08

      River: ($4.11) 2 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      Results:
      $4.11 pot ($0.27 rake)
      Final Board: 6 Q 7 5 2
      MP showed 8 8 and won $3.84 ($1.86 net)
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$1.98 net)


      I bet on this T to protect from PP and FD. Do we beat much here and is protection needed? I still think this is not such a bad bet. Problem I see is he's calling with any Qx. And we can't never bet R even if he checks again.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think you played this fine given the board and opponent.

      Your turn bet size is good as well to keep worse hands in and even though he will have some Qx playing like this he will also have FDs or even 7x/88/99.
