      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with T, A.
      Hero raises to $0.15, UTG2 raises to $0.25, 7 folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.57) A, 7, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.75, UTG2 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($2.07) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, UTG2 raises to $4.92(All-In), Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.07.

      opp stats: 38/18/2 (VPIP/PFR/3BET)

      My stats at this table were so tight, that I decided to open raise with ATs. Ofc situation after BB 3bet isn't really nice as I'm oop and not really with monster hand.

      Flop: Nice 2 pair catch and defense from me.

      Turn: Bet from me could be a bit smallish, but J definetly doesn't help me and with such a bet it should be enough to decide which path to take. Couldn't call shove, because there were too many hands that beat me - AJ, QK, still some backdoor flushes and what else.
      Preflop raise didn't really mean much from such a opp, but with that flop/turn he could catch almost everything.

      Your opinions? :)

      Flop: seems ok to me.
      Turn: I would just bet more for value, like 1.5$. After such raise really hard to put him on anything less than 2pair so i think fold is a good move here

      Be careful not to overthink about your table image at nl5 fr, 99% of the players don't care about it, at least they don't care enough to adjust in a way that really benefits you.

      I'd raise a tad bigger on the flop but no big deal, and as played bet around $1.5 on that turn planning to fold to a shove barring a read. When you bet half pot on the turn there is no telling what you induced from a bad player, he could just decide to ship his AQ or clubdraw in there just because you look weak.

      Hope it helps.
