      Hero showed J J and won $1.39 ($0.69 net)


      Villain is unknown.

      Put villain on a range of mid pair, diamond draw. As played, 9s on river and I can only think of 77 and TT which I can bet that will call my 3rd barrel. Should I have put a bet out on the river?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Preflop: From UTG I'd still recommend opening 4bb on those stakes.
      Postflop: Bet the flop & turn bigger to protect your hand and otherwise river is both ways fine. We could consider taking a thin value-bet but most likely it's safer to take a look at his hand.

      Best Regards.
