      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, J.
      7 folds, SB raises to $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, SB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.6) A, 3, A (2 players)
      SB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.2) K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.35, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.2.


      Opp stat's not available since sample size is too small.

      The board has As and K which already have me beat.
      I don't like to fold to a small bet that's why I posted for professional advice.

      Hi slashng,

      To me it seems like draw rather than slowplayed Ax hand or scared Kx hand, so I'd call turn and planning calling small bet on the river

      Hello slashng,

      Preflop: Do a bigger raise against his min-raise. At least $0,40.
      Postflop: Otherwise it's way too weak to fold it on turn while you might easily be against any smaller PP which is scared to bet bigger and might even block with some draws. Therefore it's a Call on turn.

      Best regards.
