      River play was pretty dumb here after board paired.

      My thinking was he could call with lower flushes, but clearly I could achieve a better outcome with a bet of around 75% of the pot on river & fold to shove as I'm not committed.

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , 9:heart:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.10, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.07, BB calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.30) J:heart: , 8:heart: , 6:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP3 checks.

      Turn: ($0.30) 2:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.22, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.96, BB calls $0.74.

      River: ($2.22) J:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, BB raises to $8.79 (All-In), Hero calls $2.99 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $16.20

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ah 9h)
      BB shows a full-house, deuces full of jacks (2s 2c)

      BB wins with a full-house, deuces full of jacks (2s 2c)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      I'd definitely Bet it right on the flop and then as it completes I'd just Bet myself.

      But as played while the FH even completes It's really close while we are so deep, I might just skip the thin value and give him the chance for a Call. Since I don't really see him having that often here Jx to Bet/Call it profitable in long run, rather FHs if he raises. I'd bet ~$1,50.

      Best Regards.
