      The bets on the flop and turn were for protection against overcards and flush draws. I had also considered c/c the turn for pot control and c/f the river if another diamond hits.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $0.17, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.17, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.41) 6, 8, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.41, CO calls $0.41.

      Turn: ($1.23) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.15, CO calls $1.15.

      River: ($3.53) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      Final Pot: $5.53.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of jacks(Jh Jc).
      CO shows a pair of tens(Ac Td).

      Hero wins with a pair of jacks(Jh Jc).

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Nah, I like your play actually and as well the Check/Call on river to induce missed draws to bet. Nice hand! Also sometimes against stations you could just bet yourself the river for value.

      Best regards.
