      Hero (BTN): $21.59 (215.9 bb)
      SB: $5.54 (55.4 bb)
      BB: $9.58 (95.8 bb)
      UTG: $13.41 (134.1 bb)
      MP: $7.07 (70.7 bb)
      CO: $14.98 (149.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T T
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.20, CO folds, Hero calls $0.20, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.55) 4 Q 2 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.15) 7 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.30, Hero raises to $1.30, MP folds

      Villain is 8/8 over 13 hands.

      I decided to flat pre, being in position. I think 3betting TT against an MP open largely isolates you against a stronger range. So I decided to just call to keep his range wider and play a smaller pot in position with him.

      On the flop I think a call is pretty mandatory. When he bet very small on the turn, I was pretty sure he was quite weak. So I decided to raise here to get him to fold top pair type hands that he could fold, considering the flush draw completed.

      However, since I have basically no info about him, I'm not sure if he's capable of folding hands like that. Would it have been better just to call here again, or even fold? Or is it fine to turn my hand into a bluff here and try to take down the pot?

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think it's a bit optimistic to get TP type hands to fold but we may get JJ and hands with equity in the pot (including spades). So I think it's fine.
