      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed)

      MP3 ($12.15)
      CO ($36.30)
      Button ($6.20)
      SB ($8.80)
      Hero ($2)
      UTG ($21.60)
      UTG+1 ($4.65)
      MP1 ($11.70)
      MP2 ($9.60)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:club: , 7:club: .
      [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], MP2 calls $0.10, [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], Button calls $0.10, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.35) T:club: , 9:club: , K:heart: [color:#0000FF](3 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $0.4[/color], [color:#CC3333]MP2 raises to $0.8[/color], Button folds, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1.9[/color], MP2 calls $1.10.

      Turn: ($4.15) 5:diamond: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      River: ($4.15) A:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      Final Pot: $4.15

      I know that draws are usually played passively, especially from the BB, but I figured that this 15-out monster draw was strong enough that I needed to either get money in the pot or drive out other draws. Was this a correct line of reasoning?
