      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , T:spade:
      5 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.06) J:spade: , 4:diamond: , 2:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.04, BB raises to $0.12, CO raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.16, BB calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.66) 5:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, CO bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16, BB calls $0.16.

      River: ($1.14) Q:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, CO bets $0.3, Hero calls $0.30, BB folds.

      Final Pot: $1.74

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows two-pair, fours and deuces (4h 2h)
      Hero shows (Jh Ts)

      CO wins with two-pair, fours and deuces (4h 2h)

      --- I dunno what I was doing here really, I think against such a loose opponent even JTo here could have been a raise preflop to $0.10, as for the flop, I think my bet was okay but I think I should have folded to raise here as CO was generally not very aggressive.

      Turn and river, no idea why I called here. Thoughts?

      Yea, fold flop, that smells trouble. They can easily have better hand and we can't continue against such an action.
      Problem with isolation raising preflop is that you are going to be OOP and you won't get any folds preflop, so it won't be easy to play postflop against such a loose guy. If we were on button I'd isoraise to play HU pot with fish (CO), but not in this situation when we're on SB.

      Good luck!

      A raise and a reraise ? You have to know in that situation that you're way behind. I totally agree, fold on the flop.
