      SB: $11.37 (227.4 bb)
      BB: $4.79 (95.8 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $10.33 (206.6 bb)
      MP: $4.46 (89.2 bb)
      CO: $2.13 (42.6 bb)
      BTN: $5.49 (109.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with :Jd: :Td:
      Hero raises to $0.15, 4 folds, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) :5c: :7s: :Th: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.15, BB calls $0.15

      It is my weakest Tx hand on UTG.. so should I chack behind to protect my check behind range?

      Turn: ($0.62) :8h: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.38, BB calls $0.38

      I think, he still can have good broadways and many GTST, OESD.. I bet for protection. (I don't have here much value or do I?

      River: ($1.38) :Qs: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      $1.38 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: :5c: :7s: :Th: :8h: :Qs:
      BB showed :Jc: :8s: and lost (-$0.68 net)
      Hero showed :Jd: :Td: and won $1.32 ($0.64 net)

      Your line seems not bad. Especially if the BB is a fish. Otherwise checking back the flop is a good alternative and bet the turn if he would check to you.
