      Cake Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed)

      Button ($3)
      SB ($5.30)
      Hero (BB) ($10)
      UTG ($10.59)
      UTG+1 ($10.73)
      MP1 ($10.91)
      MP2 ($8.59)
      CO ($2.25)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 10:heart: , Q:heart:
      UTG calls $0.10, 5 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.30) J:spade: , 9:club: , 2:diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, 1 fold

      Turn: ($0.70) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.47, SB calls $0.47

      River: ($1.64) 2:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Total pot: $1.64

      SB had J:diamond: , 9:diamond: (two pair, Jacks and nines).
      Hero had 10:heart: , Q:heart: (two pair, Queens and twos).
      Outcome: Hero won $1.64

      Flop: Openender for me so I'm calling to see whats going on on turn.

      Turn: Improved to TP but KT and T8 completed their straights. I'm thinking about calling one more bet if it's not pot or bigger. Since he just checked I'm going for a bet/fold here.

      River: Improved to 2 pair, but it's a drawy board and I don't have much of a kicker so I would call even a pot size bet here, but not more than that. Would it be OK? Since he checkes I decided to check behind. Should I bet in this situation?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Flop: Calling in position is totally fine, our implied odds are correct.
      Turn: As he decides to Check we can easily even bet for value here, he might still Call us with Jx and maybe even with draws. Also like your comments. :)
      River: It's kinda close, sometimes I see even small value here vs Jx type of hands but definitely it ain't wrong if you just Check behind since it's a freeplay.

      Best regards.
