      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by http://www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2s, Kc. MP1 posts a blind of $0.02.
      MP1 checks, 3 folds, BU calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.08) Ts, 2h, 8c (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP1 checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.08) 2d (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.02, MP1 calls $0.02, BU raises to $0.26, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.35 (All-In), MP1 folds, BU calls $0.09.

      River: ($0.80) 7h

      Final Pot: $0.80

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows [ 2s, Kc ] three of a kind, Twos
      BU shows [ 2c, 7d ] a full house, Twos full of Sevens
      BU wins $0.76 USD with a full house, Twos full of Sevens.

      I think my initial turn bet is a bit weak, however I thought I'd be able to get more people calling (25% pot size; maybe 50% or 66% would have been better).

      You should bet potsize turn, sou you can shove river if you get only called, otherwise when reraised go AI turn.
      In M-way pot you don't want 3 people call your limp, but 1 to call your raise or reraise you... That would be the standard play, however people on NL2 are capable of anything. The brain is excluded from poker on NL2 :D
      Also you shouldn't post results as it may influence the judgement.

      definitely bet a bigger turn as they are calling stations in NL2 and you want to get paid

      put in a pot size bet on the turn. Theres so many people left in the hand, theres a good chance you'll get called here even with the big bet.

      You want to find a way to go all in in this spot. $0.02 just won't generate enough of a pot to shove the river.

      First of all please convert it into a proper format. More information can be found here and it is much appreciated :) !

      Now then about your hand:
      I would bet the Pot on the Turn first of all. Why? Because you want to get as much value as possible, a minbet does not give you as much value ($0.06 differnce)

      then if someone raises, ofcourse you go all-in with Trips so well played :f_grin:
