      $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Holdem
      8 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($88.49)
      UTG+1 ($42.44)
      MP1 ($73.79)
      MP2 ($47.50)
      CO ($50.02)
      BTN ($9.67)
      Hero (SB) ($49.50)
      BB ($51.57)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 8 players) Hero is SB A:heart: A:spade:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.50, MP1 calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero bets $3, 1 fold, UTG+1 calls $2.75, MP1 calls $2.75.

      Flop: T:club: 2:heart: 5:club: ($10.25, 3 players)
      Hero bets $8, UTG+1 calls $8, MP1 calls $8

      Turn: T:spade: ($34.25, 3 players)
      Hero bets $12, UTG+1 calls $12, MP1 folds

      River: 6:club: ($58.25, 2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks

      My bet on turn is lower because I got scared that one of them could have the T here, made a blockbet. On river I wasn't really sure if I want to ship here so decided to check. What do you think about the play, could I extract more value from this hand?

      Bet more on turn, you still have to protect against FD. Remember that if 2 T's came on the board, it's less likely that they're holding one of the other 2.

      I bet $22 on the turn. He'll be inclined to call with some PP as well as FD, cause he won't believe you hit this board.

      Very interesting hand. Betting 22$ on turn commits us to the pot so we must be sure we want to stick our money in. It depends a lot on reads I guess. If they're reasonable players I doubt any of them has a boat because they would raise on flop given the flush draw. At the same time a 10 can easily be in MP1 range and he would have good odds to call it on the flop. So... I don't really know how I would have played this :D . Any stats?

      You have potsize left on the turn.
      c/f seems a little weak, so I´d bet 20$ on the turn- this way I have to call shove and I would shove river with any river card.
