      I agree with Laurenz1988. You should have folded preflop because J5 is a horrible hand - especially because you play against a raiser and out of position. Even if it is suited: easy fold preflop.
      As you played it: nice fold on the turn.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I just like to vary my starting hands a lot, it is just how I play, and especially when I have reads on my opponents. I think my post flop play is good enough to play loose pre-flop. and this player has been raising all over the place :) .

      it's something to play 34s or 69s but J5 is kinda off. You can't make a straight, top pair is weak, 2 pair is not top 2 pair.

      varying works well in position, OOP try not to be too clever.

      Varying ur play at 25NL is of no use at all, start doing that at 400NL+. These players wont think about ur hand. Btw if ur postflop was that good, u shouldnt be asking this question, cuz its plain easy.
