      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG ($4)
      UTG+1 ($1.75)
      Hero (CO) ($4)
      BTN ($6.09)
      SB ($4.32)
      BB ($4)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) Hero is CO 10:club: J:diamond:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.16, BTN calls $0.16, 2 folds, UTG+1 folds

      Flop: J:spade: 8:club: Q:spade: ($0.42, 2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: Q:heart: ($0.42, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30
      BU=33/7, 28h

      MP=44/6, so isolating here is reasonable. BU cold-calls AJ+, KJ+, 22-JJ I think. Maybe even wider.

      C-bet or not? Only worse hands, he can call is draws. Also, I would not know, what to do on the turn, if I don`t hit.

      If he would bet the flop, I would call and re-evaluate the turn.

      Now I`m almost certain I have the best hand.

      I think it's good spot to cbet :board is mediocre, u have equity, opp is loose so he hits this board about 1/3 of the time,many turn cards u can barrel with and he can have equity against u,so bet to fold his equity share and this is part of value.I would play for SD value if opp is aggresive ant bet abd barrel if u check.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      One good advice for you. Did you plan to Call it? If you did then you have as well your answer, CBet it. :) If you planned to Check/Fold which is a bit weak then not much to add.

      Otherwise seems to be fine.

      Best regards.
