      River: ($1.74) J (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BTN bets $0.61 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.61, BB calls $0.61

      Results: $3.57 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: T K J 2 J
      BTN showed J T and won $3.40 ($2.21 net)
      Hero showed 9 8 and lost (-$1.19 net)
      BB showed 3 Q and lost (-$1.19 net)

      I think I played this hand far too passively. Should I have just taken the initiative on the flop with my big draw? The difference in stack sizes between the opponents also made me confused as to the correct action

      Hello 0744379,

      I'd most likely just Check/Raise the turn and might even play for the stacks. BB may easily have a lot of worse hands and maybe we need even to protect our hand. Another possibility would be also to Check/Raise the flop right there since we are planning to play for the stacks most likely.

      Best Regards.
