      Full Tilt Pot-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      BB ($51.85)
      UTG ($37)
      MP ($50)
      CO ($50)
      Hero (Button) ($106.70)
      SB ($64)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K, J
      3 folds, Hero bets $1.50, SB calls $1.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($3.50) 5, 5, J (2 players)
      SB bets $3.50, Hero calls $3.50

      Turn: ($10.50) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($10.50) 10 (2 players)
      SB bets $7.50, Hero calls $7.50

      Total pot: $25.50 | Rake: $1.25

      I don't like to play the hand this way but:

      -if I raise flop I cost myself money as he is very often bluffing here and maybe he wants to barell turn + if he shoves I have to fold even though he can bluff here
      -turn not a good card i think c.b. is good here
      -river I guess I have to call as he still has much air in his range

      potsize bet looks scary so I think call might be better option than raise/folding, although I think he won´t really re-bluff you since you can easily have there 5
      Instead of checking back turn and then calling river I think you can also b/f turn to 6$ and then take your free showdown. Mostly I´d expect him to barrel that turn card, so if he checks he easily can have showdown valuea nd c/c Jx or lower pp-s
