      hey did i play this hand badly?

      TURN ($1.34) 9:spade: A:club: 6:spade: 5:heart:

      RIVER ($3.04) 9:spade: A:club: 6:spade: 5:heart: 6:diamond:

      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Hero shows J:spade: A:diamond:
      (Pre 26%, Flop 13.9%, Turn 6.8%)

      UTG shows Q:spade: A:heart:
      (Pre 74%, Flop 86.1%, Turn 93.2%)

      UTG wins $2.89

      on the flop i thought i would call his donk since raising only isolates against stronger hands... is this right?

      i interpreted his check as weakness on the turn so i decided to bet into him and hope to gain value from some other weird Ax hand or some pocket pair.

      on the river i decided that there was no point in continuing the aggression so i decided to just check in case i was beaten.

      i didn't see any other way to play the flop, but should i have bet the turn like that or simply just checked behind?
