      On this hand I would like to know if I played the turn and

      river too passively.

      Stats on villian amount only to 7 hands which were

      vpip43/pfr29/Agg factor1.0/Agg29%

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Known players:
      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $0.08, 4 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.24) Q, 2, T (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.11, SB calls $0.11, BB folds.

      Turn: ($0.46) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Was this play correct?

      River: ($0.46) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks.

      What should I have done?

      My thinking
      Preflop: I raise4bb with pp and get 2 callers, on the limited number of hands they both seem quite loose.

      Flop: Both villians check and I need to protect my hand against possible flush draw. Since both have checked Im thinking they cant have a Q otherwise they would have bet it, so I think I have best hand and bet. Get 1 caller.

      Turn: Bad card for me cos if villian drawing to flush he just made it, but he checks so I think he could be slow playing his flush but if another diamond comes I make flush. Anyway I check---------Was this correct?

      River: Nothing changes on river, villian checks, what should I do

      Thanks for any help.

      Hello denetomtom,

      I'd definitely CBet it a bit bigger ~$0,18 or something similar. Rather just make it 1/2 which just make you look very weak and might induce bluffs against you.

      As played nothing much to add on turn, I'd rather Check it behind as well and hope to see a free showdown. No point to bet the river either, ain't gonna be a lot worse hands anyways.

      Best regards.
