      Any advice here is good. I'm pretty sure I played this badly and should be raising the turn or getting it in on the river. Thoughts?

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:heart: , J:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.20, BU calls $0.20, SB folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.62) J:heart: , J:club: , 4:spade: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25, BU folds.

      Turn: ($1.12) 5:diamond: (2 players)

      Turn looks really safe and he bets strongly so just calling here is also an option.

      River shove is a must I think. Leading out three times looks very strong but I would raise-shove here and make notes if he played that way with 77+ or maybe fullhouse...

      (he got JT right?)

      44, and donked out with the FH. really strange line. I should really raise the turn I'm aware of that, but when I call the turn, I'm SUPER surprised to see him also bet the river, thats why i decide just to call.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      That's pretty sick spot, although I guess shipping the river is an option as well, sometimes he might even slowplay some higher overpairs there and as well has a lot of worse Jx type of hands in his range.

      And about the raise on turn it ain't a must, you can easily just Call it and try shipping on river.

      Best regards.
