      I think at this limit your fold on the river probably did save you 37c.

      You probably should look at your betting strategy though. In this case you could have bet a lot better to get him all in on the turn.

      Check it out:
      25c on the Flop.
      Turn pot is now 78 instead.
      75c on Turn and now you are putting him to a push or fold decision.

      These players are going to draw on you no matter what, that's what makes them so profitable, so you might as well really charge them for it.

      first of all I recommend posting your hands in the hand evaluation section where a judge can evaluate it and give you more in depth advice. Now the way you played it i would not have folded the river. Simply there is $1.93 in the pot and it only costs you .37 to see the showdown abd you have TPTK (top pair top kicker) so you could vvery well be aheead. But as Tokyoaces said you might as well have gone all in on the turn protecting your hand, generating more fold equity and not having to make a dificult decision on the river :)
