      Villian showed KJo (J was a diamond).

      Thoughts on my play, odds were not great on flop I know but I rarely fold hands with decent equity in positon as the villian may not even have a hand himself and could check on turn allowing you to steal pot.

      Known players:

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9:diamond: , 8:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.18, BU folds, SB calls $0.15, BB calls $0.13.

      Flop: ($0.54) K:diamond: , J:club: , 5:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.54, Hero calls $0.54, SB folds.

      Turn: ($1.62) T:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.62, Hero raises to $6.42 (All-In), BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $4.86

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, that's kinda questionable what to do on the turn. Sometimes I just flat and ship the river since we will be most likely still able to ship. Another option would be of course to play it this way as you did and protect your hand which is obviously totally fine as well. While he looks kinda loose player and while having a hand.

      Best Regards.
