      Hero (MP): $2.57 (128.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A J
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.08, CO folds, BTN calls $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.25) K 6 J (3 players)

      River: ($0.61) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, BB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20

      Think the check on the turn was a mistake. Didn't have a lot of reads on BB.

      BB showed T J and lost (-$0.56 net)

      Hey Dublinmatt,

      Preflop is fine.

      Flop cbet is ok - although since it's a little thin for value, checking flop is also fine here.

      Q is not a good turn card for extracting further value. I think checking is fine. TJ just happens to be one of the few hands that might call another bet. A lot of other hands in opponents range are either not calling or they've improved to a better hand.

      I think best option on river is just to check back, hard to see getting called by worse - although you do make it very small which is good.
