      Time for a "biggest winner" analysis... :f_love:
      How to get the most value?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with J, J.
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 6 folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) 6, 6, J (2 players)
      BB bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.
      What to do here? I represent having missed the flop.

      Turn: ($0.21) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, BB calls $0.10.
      I try to make it look as if I hit the ace but am scared of the flush.

      River: ($0.41) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.22, BB raises to $2.23(All-In), Hero calls $1.60.
      I was expecting him to either check/fold or check/shove a flush here... when he shoves he's beat unfortunately :f_p:
      Could I somehow squeeze more value on previous streets?

      Final Pot: $4.46.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, jacks full of sixes(Jd Js).
      BB shows a flush, ace high(2c 7c).

      Hero wins with a full-house, jacks full of sixes(Jd Js).

      After the hand I make a note that he's calling UTG raises with that. :P

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Flop: Guess I would just threw a small raise right here. If he has any kind of draw, he may still Call you. Doesn't even have to be very big. Usually such donk-bets which are small are rather draws which wants to get a cheap showdown. And we have to consider that we need to build up the pot as well.

      As played
      Turn: I'd definitely bet it bigger ~$0,16, it could still be that he had the FD on flop. And which now is going for the Check/Raise.
      River: And not much to add. Lucky for us. :D

      Best regards.
