      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6, 8.
      5 folds, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.10) 4, 7, 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.3, SB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.70) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.45, SB calls $0.45.

      River: ($1.60) 3 (2 players)

      Flop raise ok? Both turn and river cards are quite ugly, so I opted to check behind the river.

      you have to play your straight aggressively, it's fragile on this board and cards like 3,6 and 8 might very well slow down the action.
      you have to raise bigger on the flop, you are giving him good odds to call with a draw.
      make it at least 0.5$.

      Turn: again bet bigger to protect and maximize your hand.

      River: You can beat 2pair/set but since a flash is possible now (and his play in the earlier streets fits a FD) I prefer checking too.
