      BB: $11.39 (113.9 bb)
      UTG: $5.68 (56.8 bb)
      MP: $8.24 (82.4 bb)
      CO: $13.26 (132.6 bb)
      BTN: $3.90 (39 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.56 (105.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T T
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.10, CO raises to $0.40, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.35, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1) 9 3 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.20) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.30, CO calls $1.30

      River: ($4.80) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

      Preflop: Decided to call for a set value. Was expecting the MP to complete.

      Flop: Decided to donk bet for protection against broadways. When he calls, I put him on something like Ax with a flushdraw or AA-JJ with a flushdraw. I believe he would sometimes raise AA-JJ without a flushdraw.

      Turn: Decided to bet again. Maybe was better to check/call or check/fold.

      River: I probably wont get value from any worse hand (like Ax with busted flushdraw), so I decided to check. I expect him to check back most of his overpairs. When he bet, I assume he can sometimes have Ax with busted flushdraw, so I called. Probably it was too optimistic.

      MP: 32/18/139 (VPIP/PFR/H)

      Hey Alleen86,

      Hand is ok. Not necessarily overly optimistic, but generally will be pretty thin through no fault of your own.

      I don't mind keeping the pot small and not c-betting flop, especially since you also have a draw that may or may not be good. You don't mind having a T-high flush in a small pot, but it could become awkward in a larger pot.

      As played, turn bet is fine. But since you are primarily targetting flush-draws it's useful to keep the sizing small, maybe even $0.80 or something instead.
