      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, T.
      CO posts deadblind, Hero calls $0.10, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.75) T, 5, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($0.75) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, CO calls $0.50.

      River: ($1.75) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      Final Pot: $3.75.

      I check the flop hoping for a bet from the preflop raiser but failed. I bet out the turn to prevent a Q from drawing. And on the river I was given good odds.

      Your preflop and flop plays are terrible here. You are playing weak passive just a fish.

      There is dead money in the pot so your only preflop choices are raise or fold. Make a choice!

      You didn't post any reads on the CO so we have to assume that at NL10 he must be a passive fish. Thus you must bet the flop after you hit.

      Rules of Micro Limts:
      1) Value bet!
      2) Don't Bluff.
      3) No slowplay/fancy play

      You are mostly right.

      The reason I limped in is I did not want to be 3b out of my band.

      Didn't notice CO was that short during the hand. Should definitely cbet the flop.

      Check out the other hands I posted yesterday man.

      raise pf or fold, don´t limp
      I would bet myself on the river, since I think he´d very often check back one pair hands
