      This one I got lost, should I bet the turn?
      OK to call the river? By checking the turn I induce a bluff after all.

      On that flop I would bet/fold 6$. Imo 4,8$ gives flushdraw good implied odds and they would often call with heart. You could play bet/fold turn, but I also like check there and since you checked the turn you have to call river.

      yeah pretty bad board but you know JJ is just not that strong. 2 overs with an obvious flush and a possible straight I wouldn't call this for 1/2 pot on the river, but you definitely can, depending on the opponent. Your bet on the flop probably was a bit small considering your hand and the board. Personally I prefer to bet the turn here in position, you will get more information about your hand and prevent a difficult river call. But if you like to allow bluffs and to make difficult calldowns then go ahead

      True, could've bet more on the flop.
      Damn, I'm going into autopilot and betting 2/3 when I should bet more.

      I would bet $5.50 to $6 on flop, bet turn and then decide, depending on resistance.

      Bet a little bit more and then switch to c/f.
