      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , T:heart:
      2 folds, BU calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.
      After getting two calls on flop I decided to go for pot control on the turn.

      Better to value bet the hand?

      Flop: ($0.06) T:spade: , 6:heart: , 2:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.05, BB calls $0.05, BU calls $0.05.

      Turn: ($0.21) A:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.21) 7:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $0.21

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows (8h 7h)
      Hero shows a pair of tens (Jh Th)
      BB shows (Td 3s)

      Hero wins with a pair of tens (Jh Th)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Only reason I might isolate here is that BB is short. Although if he would be full stacked then I'd even consider isolating. But obviously completing is totally standard.
      Postflop: Well the problem on turn is that if we Bet it then we often have to even consider going broke against BB range. For that given reason I might even prefer taking a passive line while it's just a freeplay pot.

      Best regards.
