      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:heart: , J:diamond:
      3 folds, SB raises to $0.12, Hero calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.24) J:heart: , T:spade: , 2:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.17, Hero calls $0.17.

      Turn: ($0.58) 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.42, Hero calls $0.42.

      River: ($1.42) A:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.01, Hero calls $1.01.

      Final Pot: $3.44

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      SB shows a straight, ace high (Kd Qs)
      Hero shows (Ah Jd)

      SB wins with a straight, ace high (Kd Qs)

      Flop & Turn: Felt he could have worse J hands, maybe some T hands. When he bet the turn I felt it was unlikely he was bluffing as the board had paired and I was likely to call again.

      River: Now he bet big again, If I hadn't hit the A here I may fold? JT + sets or FH only hands I can see value betting big on the river again. But since I now have JT also beat I think I can call?

      Anything I should have done different?

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Actually sometimes I even fold it on turn, while played like that. Although Calling there ain't wrong, time to time he has also bluffs there or even worse Jx. And as we went that far, I'd also Call the river, nothing much to do there. Although I hope him to have something like Ax or worse 2pairs.

      Definitely take a note on him that he 2barreled with OESD.

      Best regards.
