      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is MP2 with T :club: T :heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.75, 4 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 6 :spade: 2 :heart: T :spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $1.25, Hero calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.35) Q :spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $2, Hero calls $2

      River: ($8.35) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $6, Hero folds

      I initially called for set mining after a tight player open-raises from UTG. I thought that if I raise him on the flop he might smell my set so I decided to let him commit himself on the turn. After the third spade came I knew he wouldn't have called my raise with anything worse than my set. 4th spade forced me to throw away.

      Hey Stevie,

      Why don't yuo have 100bb in your stack? You can use the auto-reload option on Stars so you always have 100bb stack or more.

      Preflop is fine, flop I would just raise... You have <100bb so overpairs are more likely to not fold plus the board is drawy enough for you to rep some draws too. As played flop, raising turn is an option too but now you represent flushes instead of flush draws so not great. River is ofc a fold.
