      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, BB calls $0.08.

      I vary my play - sometimes 3bb raise, sometimes 4bb, so don't think that's a leak.

      Flop: ($0.26) T, 2, J (2 players)
      BB bets $0.48, Hero raises to $1.00, BB calls $0.52.

      I was thinking that he probably just wanted to catch me from the blind steal and was betting with any 2 cards. But now I realize that 2x pot bet HAS to mean something. And I should have folded right there or bet/folded to see if he was just trying to get me off my blind steal. Anyway my bet sizing is wrong. If anything, I should've made it 1.5 or smth.

      Turn: ($2.26) 8 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.00, BB raises to $6.63, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      My last attempt to buy the pot (FAIL).

      Final Pot: $4.26.

      I had no stats/reads on him whatsoever, but since he was already pretty deep, I assumed that he must've been a solid player and that's why I thought he was just battling me over blinds.

      better is just give up on the flop.
      He won´t lead there 2x potsize with random hands, that he would fold if you raise
      I would take free card on the turn, since often he´d c/c or c/rai
