      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $28.97
      BB:
      $11.01
      MP2:
      $4.44
      MP3 (Hero):
      $13.61
      CO:
      $9.81
      BU:
      $10.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, A.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.85) Q, J, 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.65) 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.78, Hero calls $0.78.

      River: ($3.21) 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.52, Hero calls $1.52.

      Final Pot: $6.25.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of jacks(J A).
      BB shows a flush, king high(7 K).

      BB wins with a flush, king high(7 K).

      The reason I kept calling his bets with only a mid pair post flop were his stats (58/29). Should I have folded anyways? However, after all, he was only chasing a flush and I had higher odds after the flop.

      Hello Tunatic,

      The problem on river is that you don't really beat much. :) Some draws even completed and I doubt that he is bluffing there anymore. For me the river is a fold if you even did Call the turn.

      Best regards.
