      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $13.23 (132.3 bb)
      BB: $13.44 (134.4 bb)
      Hero (MP): $10.30 (103 bb)
      CO: $10.41 (104.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A J
      Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.90) 5 J T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.90) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.40, SB calls $1.40

      River: ($4.70) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      $4.70 pot ($0.23 rake)
      Final Board: 5 J T 8 5
      SB showed Q K and lost (-$2.30 net)
      Hero showed A J and won $4.47 ($2.17 net)

      What is a typical SB flat call range against MP i guess something like TT-22,AQs-A2s,KTs+,QTs+,JTs,AQo-ATo,KTo+,QTo+ but this is just speculating. against this range i bet the flop for value and anticipate a lot of hands calling with a large number of lesser top pairs and second pairs eager to see another card. the turn brings in the flush but i bet the turn for protection against a pair + flush redraw or over cards with a redraw. Should i have bet the river ? lesser top pairs would probably call a small bet i would imagine

      Hello legand73,

      The idea of betting the turn is to Bet it for free showdown and that's it. We ain't getting any value on the river. :) Already on the turn actually we have to ask how many worse hands Call there anyways.

      Best Regards.
