      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, J.
      UTG1 raises to $0.08, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.08, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.25) 3, 8, 9 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG1 checks, MP3 checks.

      Turn: ($0.25) J (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, UTG1 folds, MP3 calls $0.12.

      River: ($0.49) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, MP3 calls $0.35.

      Final Pot: $1.19.


      is betting the turn here a bad idea, it was sort of an instinctual thing at the time and now i look at it, it was probably a bad play, also did i raise to small on the river, would raising another 5 or so bb be a better idea for value?

      Hello foulkezboyz,

      You should be betting the turn bigger but I don't really understand what's your purpose of betting so huge on the river? You understand that Tx hands are possible and not many worse pay you?

      Best Regards.
