      Final Pot: $1,00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows (Ad 8c)
      Hero shows two-pair, jacks and fives (Jd 5d)

      Hero wins with two-pair, jacks and fives (Jd 5d)

      Bet on flop to see how other players will react. Turn gives me two pair so it's a bet again. Since CU calls on flop and turn, I put him on flash draw. Called on river only because he bets 1/3 of pot. What are your opinion about this hand? Should I call a larger bet 1/2- 2/3 of the pot on river?

      Preflop: Nothing you can do differently here.

      Flop: I'd check/fold since you're out of position on a limped pot with 3 other people, if you did want to bet you should bet bigger to protect against draws - I'd say the full $0.09.

      Turn: Bet, your betsizing is fine, you could even have bet $0.20 here if you think the others were still chasing draws.

      River: Check/call is fine I think, you could also bet out though as there are many draws your opponents could be chasing, pairs, or they may have had some overpair on the flop - all of which will pay you off here.

      --- Just thoughts from another beginner, so wait for an expert's advice before you take it for sure ;)

      Hello koosMaras,

      Flop: Being OOP I'd rather also just prefer to Check/Fold our hand. But it could be doable for example against 1 opponent but definitely not against 3.

      As played
      Turn: As we hit our 2pair then we can likely continue barreling to protect from any kind of draw.
      River: Since it will be pretty hard for them to Call with lot worse and also flushdraw came therefore I'd also prefer to just Check/Call here against some smaller bet as it was.

      Best regards.
