      I would bet less on the flop, maybe $0.28 - $0.34 or something. You're still not giving the right odds to draw so there's no point in betting more.

      I would also ch/c the river as he could have been calling the flop with J9, I think your hand is still too strong to b/f.

      EDIT: Ok so he did have J9, also having just looked at his stats, I think it's ok to b/f river against this player.

      Also I might also check turn and see if he bets because he could have hit his draw and he's not going to be betting a J. So if he bets the turn you can call depending on how much it is and re-evaluate river.

      Hello johny8984,

      Bet the turn bigger and also I don't mind Betting the river ourself, since we can still get called by a lot worse pairs which me may easily Check behind. Well played!

      Best regards.
