      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J, A.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, BU folds, SB calls $0.05, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.14) 8, T, 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, SB raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.54) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.22, Hero raises to $0.44, SB calls $0.22.

      River: ($1.42) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1.42.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of jacks(Js Ah).
      SB shows a pair of nines(Kc 9d).

      Hero wins with a pair of jacks(Js Ah).

      I raised the turn because I thought I had a lot of equity against most of his hands and there was also some fold equity. I don't think a river bet would accomplish much because worse hands would fold anyway, and better hands would call or raise.

      Was this an okay line? How about the raise size on the turn?

      Hello Rebiin,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Mate, you rarely have any fold equity with the min-raise. :P That's practically near 0 and you also put yourself into that spot where the guy shoves you wont be able to Call. Therefore just take the odds if you want to Call at all! I'd myself advice strongly to fold it right on the flop cause you could easily have reversed implied odds there.

      Best Regards.
