      opponent 43/22/ af= 1.3 / wts = 38 / w$s = 52 / hands = 340

      Do I have to consider folding river even for given odds?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $10.05
      BB:
      $29.15

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, Q.
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.40, BU folds, Hero calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.9) 7, A, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20.

      Hello sausage646,

      I'd most likely bet myself on the turn, by that I mean donk after him making such a small bet. Although as played, nope I am not folding for the given odds.

      Best Regards.

      do you really consider donking turn, since if he had a ace or jack he would bet anyway, from flop action looks like he is having really weak hand, which we might make him fold, - and jack or "slow played" ace which he will bet anyway..
      + there isn't that many strong draws..
      wouldn't it be better to just check call turn?

      Why should I? Take a look at his bet size on flop. :) It's either -> He is Checking behind or again betting that smallish, but I'd like to get some value from his hands. If he doesn't have a hand he wont pay you anyways.
