        should be an easy fold with midpair no kicker. but whyever I didn't give him an A, and no pocket pair. J8 for a straight? No. I took it as a bluff. Comments?

      Not bad. I don't like to take too big interest in hands like that so I usually check/fold them to the bitter end, but I don't think that a river call's bad.

      According to basic SSS you did well ,except from calling on river,should be c/f and I
      do the same c/f way in most of such situations without reads on my opps,but this
      constant checking in these limits shows weakness,if you want this pot,when they check to you on turn ,you can bet .It is bad habit wait until the river.If you did bet,you would know where you are.Of course I understand you main worry-5 opps,one probably have rag A.Question to experts-what should be bet in this situation -1/3 or 1/2 pot size?
      When I`m studying poker ,I think not only about this limit.
      A few quotes from TV:
      1)Tony G -it`s all about control-he checks,you bet,he reraises you can fold (not
      SSS ,but simple poker truth).
      2)Howard Lederer-good players from great ones differs that they take down those
      small pots which others don`t want(about Phil Ivey on Monte Carlo cash
      invitational).
      Good luck.

      i would fold, too much of thinking for NL 25. T5+ beats you, J8 and any Ax. given the passiveness of NL 25 players, Ax here is very much possible. So I would fold and wait for a better spot
