      It's a tough spot. Bloated pot OOP. Small river bet, 1/3 pot or even smaller, would have been the smart move here.

      As played, I would not fold the river here either, although I should. How many villains are capable of pulling this off at these limits? You were lucky I guess.....

      Ahhh again, one of those spots that I hate. I don't know about this one, but I probably fold here.

      It seems like a spot you can consider to shove for value on the turn and you protect your hand against draws.

      I agree with SDK, why don't you continue betting on turn too?

      I thought if I cbet OTT, only better hands will call so I wanted to get some information for free. But maybe you are right that I should cbet against draws. So would you play OTT raise/fold, OTR chk/fold?

      Yeah, that is a tricky spot. But I assume shove OTT is the best option on microstakes, because only JJ,TT and JTs beat you, but it is only 5 combos and they have a lot of draws, pair+draw..., so you do not want to get him free card and they will call you with weaker Jx and draws, because people like calling on these limits. But river is call for me, because if the player on the button has a value hand, I suppose to he would bet on the turn, so it looks like a busted draw.

      SPR is less than 1. So OTT either shove or bet small and fold to raise
