      Felt I could fold river, but raise on turn confused me as he will not likely have many Ax hands that he would chose to raise there, he may instead have some kind of 2 pair or set.

      Known players:

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:heart: , 9:heart: . MP3 posts a blind of $0.05.
      MP3 checks, CO checks, BU folds, SB calls $0.02, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.15) J:club: , T:heart: , 2:club: (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.17, MP3 calls $0.17, 2 folds.

      Turn: ($0.49) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.41, MP3 raises to $0.82, Hero calls $0.41.

      River: ($2.13) K:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.04, MP3 raises to $3.96 (All-In), Hero calls $2.92.

      Final Pot: $10.05

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows a straight, ace high (As 2h)
      Hero shows (Jh 9h)

      MP3 wins with a straight, ace high (As 2h)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, while it's just a freeplay pot I don't like that much to continue on turn, most likely I'd just Bet/Fold it even vs a min-raise, you will never know where you stand if you hit one of your cards. As what even happened.

      What hands do you expect to beat on river if he shoves? Standard Bet/Fold if anything at all.

      Best Regards.
