      Hero (SB): $10.32 (103.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7 9
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) J Q 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.40) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      I decided to check/call since my bet could be raised as some straight draws completed and he could have improved to two pair too with this turn. Is this the right play?

      Hero checks, BB checks

      Hello maheepsangari,

      We can't often times Check/call the turn cause you don't have implied odds there unless he bets small. So our plan might even be Check/Fold or either Bet ourselves but I doubt that we have much fold equity with 2nd barreling so waste of money. Rather hope to catch a free card.

      Best Regards.
