      $0.03/$0.06 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $22.71
      BB (Hero):
      $6.00
      MP2:
      $4.48
      MP3:
      $9.71
      CO:
      $8.26
      BU:
      $8.12


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 5.
      MP2 calls $0.06, 2 folds, BU calls $0.06, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.21) 5, K, A (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.18, MP2 calls $0.18, BU folds.

      Turn: ($0.57) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, MP2 raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.30.

      River: ($1.77) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.88, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.77.

      The flop should be ok, turn came an uggliest card ever and I called to get fullhouse because I think I had really good implieds. What do we do on the river, bet/fold, check/fold or check/call? Is giving up like this too easily?

      I would play it the same - just going to shove when board pairs. Sure he might not always call but I suspect he will call enough to justify call on implieds on turn. I don't think its weak to give up on river.
