      I bet on the flop and turn for value and protection against draws.The J is kind of a blank.Do you think a river bet would be appropriate in this situation?Let's say ~1$?

      It is unlikely that a weaker hand will call your bet here. However, check/call may extract more value from a bet by Jx or a bluff from BU's missed flush draw.

      Hello dany2391,

      Nah, I don't like betting there into multiway pot. And J ain't blank, it completes KJ. :) So Nice hand!

      We could argue about the bet sizes a bit but it's not that bad.

      Best regards.
