      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      SB:
      $1.83
      BB (Hero):
      $2.61


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9, J.
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, 2 folds, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.06) 7, 8, 9 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($0.18) T (2 players)
      SB bets $0.16, Hero?

      I still crush his range of complete - donk - pot bet. My only question is the size of the raise (I assume everyone raise).
      If I raise, the FD and the over-straight draws could call. The sets and two pairs also. I think I should raise between 60 and 70c following Villain's profile.

      And what to do if Villain calls the raise and a J appears?

      Hello EinsteinFranck,

      You must understand that there ain't going to be tons of hands which pay you. You may think that 2pairs pay but it's quite obvious that you have the Jx. The other guy might as well easily have himself JT/JQ even. So could easily just isolate vs strong hands and just chopping the pot. So disagree about always raising here, mainly depends on the opponent.

      And even if a J appears why would you Bet the river? You are just chopping it anyways.

      Best Regards.
