      I think I should have raised preflop here and looking back at it I have no idea why I didn't.

      But, as played:
      I call the flop minbet because, it's a minbet, even though it's also half pot by now.

      I pick up top pair good kicker on the turn and raise for value and protection. Not sure here. I think the raise is okay but I'm not sure it was the best. I think I can't fold here either, though.

      I get checked to on the river which I see as being pretty weak so I make a small bet here. Not sure what I'm thinking. I guess I hope he'll fold, but I'm not really seeing what hands would fold here that I don't beat. I think better to just cehck behind and not let the pot get too big. If I was bet to here, I'd probably call anything less than 2/3.

      I think I know where I went wrong, anyway. The big mistake was not raising preflop. Take home lesson: Don't check BB with good hands when SB completes.

      Hero (BB): $3.23 (161.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.70 (35 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $1.98 (99 bb)
      MP: $0.72 (36 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J K
      3 folds, SB completes, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.04) 7 2 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

      Turn: ($0.08) J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.21, SB calls $0.13

      River: ($0.50) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.26, SB calls $0.26

      $1.02 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: 7 2 9 J T
      Hero showed J K and lost (-$0.51 net)
      SB showed 9 7 and won $0.97 ($0.46 net)

      I agree that you should have raise pf. Against potsize bet I would not really raise turn, since very often he has there better hand than your tp. I would checked back- consider his potsize turn and that river completed straight/two pair hands I would also prefer checking back

      best regards,
