      This is my first hand im trying to get evaluated so please be kind and tell me if I make a mistake or 3.
      I did not have any stats on this player and I had a tight table image.

      What I want to know is;
      whats the correct move here?
      Why is that correct?

      Is there a better way to post the hand? please let me know

      Hey painterman007,

      welcome to the SSS forum, I hope you'll find it beneficial and progress with your poker career well!

      I would play this hand the same way you did. The continuation bet on the flop in heads-up pot is standard and even though you have trash hand according to the articles and you should fold, you still have 2 overcards which will most of the time give you 6 outs for the best hand. And 6 outs give you about 24% equity, but with only 0.40$ left in your stack you only need 20.3%. Besides sometimes bad players will reraise you with trash like this time and you will even be favorite.

      I don't have much to say about the way you posted hand, I see you used hand converter which is :f_thumbsup: , only thing that would be nice would be if you could show the suits of the cards. And next time please remove the results because they can affect opinions of people who discuss your hands.

      If you have any other question feel free to ask, but don't forget to mark the "advise the judge to have another look" button.

      Regards,
