      Was taking villian to value town, and would have bet river for value too.

      However, given board pairs on river Ax now beats my hand so I felt that I had to give up on the plan.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:heart: , 8:club:
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.10) A:spade: , J:club: , 8:diamond: (5 players)
      SB bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, BU calls $0.10, SB calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.40) 4:diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.46, BU folds, SB calls $0.44.

      River: ($1.32) 4:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      Final Pot: $1.36

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      SB shows two-pair, aces and fours (Ah 2d)
      Hero shows (Jh 8c)

      SB wins with two-pair, aces and fours (Ah 2d)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Don't think that you can do much in this kind of spot. Although sometimes I might even prefer just taking pot control on turn rather than isolate myself against better hands in multiway pot. They will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse.

      Best regards.
