      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2(Hero) = ($5.17)
      MP3 = ($1.90)
      CO = ($2.13)
      BU = ($6.26)
      SB = ($4.72)
      BB = ($5.00)
      UTG1 = ($9.07)
      UTG2 = ($5.33)
      MP1 = ($2.37)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, T.
      UTG1 calls $0.04, UTG2 calls $0.04, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.16, 3 folds, UTG1 calls $0.12, UTG2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.58) J, Q, K (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.16, CO raises to $0.60, UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $4.85(All-In), CO calls $1.37(All-In).

      Turn: ($7.56) 9 (2 players)


      River: ($7.56) 3 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $7.56.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, ace high(A T).
      CO shows two pairs, kings and queens(Q K).

      Hero wins with a straight, ace high(A T).

      Thanks for any feedback :) Much appreciated.

      preflop: make it 0.24$ to go 4BB + 1BB per limper

      flop: I can't see the suits but you should bet more to protect your hand and to build the pot. straight is still fragile hand and also if your opponents only calls it's going to be hard for you to extract more money on further streets if a Ten or Ace hits the board (villain would be scared)

      So bet 2/3 pot (0.4$). Shoving over his 3bet if fine.

      Hope it helps,
      Good Luck.

      Thanks for the feedback, and I don't know why the suits didn't show up, it was a rainbow flop anyway so I wasn't scared of the flush.
