      iPoker - €0.50 NL - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (SB): €52.48
      BB: €90.55 VP:42/PR:11/WTSD:18 (150 hands)
      UTG: €50.00
      CO: €50.00
      BTN: €13.00

      Hero posts SB €0.25, BB posts BB €0.50

      Pre Flop: (€0.75) Hero has 9:heart: 9:club:

      fold, CO raises to €1.50, fold, Hero calls €1.25, BB calls €1.00

      Flop: (€4.50, 3 players) J:club: 8:club: T:heart:
      Hero checks, BB bets €1.50, fold, Hero calls €1.50

      Turn: (€7.50, 2 players) J:heart:
      Hero checks, BB bets €4.00, Hero calls €4.00

      River: (€15.50, 2 players) 7:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB bets €9.00, Hero raises to €45.48, BB calls €36.48

      I nearly folded on Turn - probably the best thing to do.
      I wasn't sure what to do on River once I hit str8. Raise to get value from Jx or should I only call since it's paired board?

      I get value from Jx,Tx and I lose vs 88,TT,JJ,Q9, J7,J8,JT

      calling turn seems fine with your equity and some player might even c/r there given that you also have fold equity and there are two flushdraws on the board
      I´d likely c/c river, since only hands that he might b/c are Jx, but given that there are straight on the board, he may also fold these. So if you c/rai you likely only get called by better hands
