      I know I played that hand rather fishy and it's kinda embarassing but I'm not sure what would be a correct play here, so that's why I post it here. I hit a flush draw + gutshot on the flop and an aggressive player starts the action. It looks like he's trying to protect something so I figure shove wouldn't yield much fold equity. I cant bring myself to folding my combo and on the river I get around 1:5 odds to call with my pair of jacks. So what exactly did I do wrong here? On which street should I fold?

      BB: $29.22

      SB posts SB $0.15, BB posts BB $0.30

      Pre Flop: ($0.45) Hero has J:diamond: Q:spade:

      Hero raises to $1.20, fold, SB calls $1.05, BB calls $0.90

      SB bets $15.00, Hero calls $15.00

      River: ($48.60, 2 players) 2:heart:
      SB bets $37.08 and is all-in, Hero calls $12.38 and is all-in

      fold turn, since it is very likely you won´t get paid if you hit your K or flush and I think J and Q would always not good consider how big he c/r and his bet size. I´d also fold river. Only hand you´re likely ahead is TxKs, but that is really very small range consider all the two pair/flushses/straights that he is shoving for value

      3bet flop imo, your ahead of most of his range and you do not want to see a blank turn card where you have to fold to a big bet!
