      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, T.
      5 folds, BU raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.18, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.6) 6, 9, 7 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, BB folds, BU calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.2) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BU calls $0.75.

      River: ($2.7) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1.95, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.7.

      So, yes for such a wet board I realize now my bet sizing is too small, I was trying to get value because most people at this limit just fold too often, I find, to bets over 1/2 pot on the flop for them to be worthwhile.

      With his standard blind steal raise, and calling on the flop and turn I have to put him on JTs I think. He has 3:1 on the flop to call which is good enough with implied odds and then when the OESD arrives on the turn theres no reason for him not to call. Does this seem plausible to you or does his raise on the river after my check just seem like a steal? Did I read this right?
