      You are better off betting yourself on the Flop because it is easier to make profit this way. Check/calling is really mediocre due the fact that you do not know what his range is. Mostly you are dominated by Jx and the fact it is JT9 does not give you any room to outplay him

      I would either check/fold because there are no Turncards that improve your hand in relative sense. Sure an 8 would give you a straight but it is the absolutely lowest straight

      As you can see you spewed so much money by playing such a weak hand in a freeplay where you clearly realize your opponent has a better hand 99% of the time :(

      Best regards,
