      Hey Gerv. I know it's a BSS hand, but would like to hear your opinion on this if you don't mind.

      Party, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      MP3: $4.39 (109.7 bb)
      CO: $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $1.08 (27 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $4 (100 bb)
      BTN: $9.71 (242.8 bb)
      MP2: $5.33 (133.3 bb)
      BB: $1.06 (26.5 bb)


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J J
      Hero raises to $0.16, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.16, 4 folds

      Flop: ($0.38) T A 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24
      I expect this player to call me with Ax, sets only, so I don't want to cbet. I check and call, give my opponent an opportunity to bluff.

      Turn: ($0.86) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks
      My plan was to fold to a 2nd barrel, but when he checks back, he is probably on pocket or air.

      River: ($0.86) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, MP3 raises to $0.92, Hero folds
      I bet small to get a curios call from worse hands. I don't understand his play. Not sure if he hit a set, two pair but I shouldn't be worried about getting exploited on this limit, right?

      $1.50 pot ($0.07 rake)
      Final Board: T A 4 8 7
      MP3 mucked and won $1.43 ($0.71 net)
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$0.72 net)

      Well here on the River he can think ''Hey that's a weak bet, let's raise it'' or '' I raise it for value''

      You clearly have a weak hand by the way you play it, I think check/calling a bet/check/bet line is relatively better as I think he will just fold & I am confident you have the best hand. You just want him to put more money in there with worse hands
