      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6, J.
      MP3 calls $0.25, 3 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.6) J, K, 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Turn: ($0.6) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.42, MP3 calls $0.42.

      River: ($1.44) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.02, MP3 raises to $11.04, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.46.

      So i decide not to lead flop since i dont think i can get much value there. With a better kicker i would have lead.

      OTT obv i want to lead for value/protection against Kx,FD, QQ,TT,99 etc.

      OTR same here i want to get value from worse.

      When he pushes here i think he almost always has a J and since my kicker is so bad i just fold.

      Good fold?

      Hello RainbowPonny,

      Bet the flop already yourself but otherwise not much to comment while it's a freeplay pot. Not worth the hero-call while at the best you are just vs Jx there and most of the Jx hands beat you.

      Best Regards.
