      Correct way to play JJ?

      I thought I'd have a cheeky conti at the flop, but I did not like the turn or river cards so checked them, is this the best decision?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $3.08
      MP2:
      $1.88
      MP3 (Hero):
      $1.52
      CO:
      $2.49
      BU:
      $2.43
      SB:
      $2.01
      BB:
      $1.11
      UTG2:
      $5.26


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, J.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, CO folds, BU calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) 3, 8, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, BU calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.43) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.43) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $0.43.

      Thanks,
      AKM

      Hey AKM,

      With some reads he likes to call a lot you could consider valuebetting turn again, but in general I like the check for pot control and river is a c/f because if you bet river you turn your hand into a bluff which is pointless when you have SD value.
