      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J, A.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.17, MP2 calls $0.17, 3 folds, SB calls $0.15, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.56) 8, T, J (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.39, MP2 folds, SB calls $0.39.

      Turn: ($1.34) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.93, SB raises to $1.95, Hero calls $1.02.

      River: ($5.24) 5 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $5.24.


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

      Flop: I bet for value since I don't see him re-raise me on pre-flop.
      I guess his range after calling on the flop was Tx / Jx / pairs (exclude QQ,KK,AA) / sets

      Turn: I value bet again since more worst hand like Jx or even flush draw would call me. However, he shove and given the odds, i call it.

      Could you advice wat's the best play here? If he is slow playing, then we have no choice?

      Howdy,

      I'd say nh overall. I'd bet slightly more but it's still for pure value and when he shoves we need like 1,02/5,24=19% equity and we deffo got that as he can have KJ/QJ easily.

      Good luck!
