      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9, J.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BB raises to $0.55, Hero calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.1) 3, T, 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70.

      Turn: ($2.5) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      River: ($2.5) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.5.

      ignoring the results, i'm sure i didn't play this hand well or in a +ev way

      folding to 3bet would be standard i guess.
      just wondering how to play after the flop?

      Hello qnb07,

      Preflop: It a lot depends on the opponent, but often I'd just fold it here, since you didn't write any stats on him. And I'd rather advice to do that on NL5 more often, since such 3bets are often for value.

      As played
      Flop: Also depends a lot on the opponents, sometimes as we Called preflop we could even consider Check/Raise here, since we have to take stabs sometimes in those spots, where we make such Calls, and this would be a perfect one. Otherwise seems the play to be standard.

      Also always take into account that we have to do such moves against known opponents not against unknown.

      Best regards.
