      Cake Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (7 handed)

      BB ($14.66)
      UTG ($6.41)
      MP1 ($2.18)
      MP2 ($12.65)
      CO ($3)
      Hero (Button) ($9.70)
      SB ($10)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with J:diamond: , J:heart:
      2 folds, MP2 bets $0.30, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) K:heart: , 4:spade: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.75) 9:spade: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60

      River: ($1.95) J:club: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $1

      Flop: Pretty good flop for me. He could be on a K but I think more often he missed, so I intent to call 1 bet and reevaluate on turn. Since he didn't make a contibet should I bet here? With smaller pocket I would probably bet/fold, but with JJ I want to see a showdown but don't want to inflate pot so that's why I checked behind.

      Turn: OK card for me. His bet could be delayed contibet or semibluff with FD so I'm just calling and reevaluating on river.

      River: If he was on FD too bed it's not J :spade: :D Looks like he gives up so I'm trying to extract 1/2 pot more. Should I bet like $0,60-$0.65 here since it looks to me he's very weak?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Preflop: Totally fine to just Call here if he opponent is some kind of tight or whatsoever even against unknown I don't mind such play.
      Flop: I totally agree with your comments and they seem to be improving. :) Well done! I also like checking back and reevaluate turn.
      Turn: Since he might take even such line with a lot worse and with Checkign behind the flop we induce him to make a bluff here, therefore I'd also Call.
      River: We hit pretty the nuts, bet size is totally fine. Nice hand! Sometimes against some aggressors you might consider betting it smaller since it might induce them to bluff-raise but at that moment your size is totally fine for value.

      Best regards.
