      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, J.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.20, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.55, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.35.

      Flop: ($1.15) 8, J, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, MP2 calls $0.85.

      Turn: ($2.85) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $1.35, Hero calls $1.35.

      River: ($5.55) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.25, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.55.

      Could I have extracted more value? I think he had 99 or TT
      MP2 stats: 13/7/2.2/Fcbet 68%(3bet pot 25%)/Fold to 3bet 36%/926 hands

      Hello Sikac,

      Preflop: I don't like your 3bet in first place here. You can't really do that so profitable, especially against MP who has 7PFR. I'd rather Call. What's your plan if you face 4bet? And why do you 3bet with so small amount?

      As played
      Postflop: Well, I'd most likely just Bet/Bet/Bet and play for the stacks. :) If he called the flop it may easily be even the case that he has some kind of hand which wants to play even maybe for the stacks. Doubt that we gonna win a lot here while being OOP and let him bluff.

      Best Regards.

      I think 3betting with JJ aren't such a good idea.
      Post flop you should've raise it on the turn. You could've got called by worse hand like weaker fullhouse and maybe overpair like QQ if you min-raised which gonna make it harder for him to fold if you shove it on the river. As played you'd only get called by weaker fullhouse or quads.
