      Final Pot: $9.05

      Right here I decided to call, only because villain pushed me out of a pot with a 3,5 $ reraise into a 1,5 $ pot (my bet was 60 cents, top pair jack kicker) and I folded.
      This time I prefered to call and check/call the rest against the same villain.

      I didn't feel like betting because I felt I'd only be called or pushed by a better hand and I prefered to exert some pot control with my medium made hand.
