      PartyGaming - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $0.32
      UTG: $2.15
      Hero (UTG+1): $2.00
      MP: $4.59
      MP+1: $0.75
      LP: $5.42
      CO: $2.00
      BTN: $0.30
      SB: $2.00

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has J:heart: J:club:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, fold, LP calls $0.08, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.19, 2 players) 6:heart: 7:diamond: 4:heart:
      Hero bets $0.14, LP calls $0.14

      Turn: ($0.47, 2 players) 8:heart:
      Hero bets $0.33, LP calls $0.33

      River: ($1.13, 2 players) 9:club:
      Hero checks, LP bets $4.87 and is all-in, fold

      LP wins $1.08

      I think the optimal play on that draw heavy board is to lay down pair of Jacks.

      If I was to bet, I am not really sure what to bet. Definitely not pot or near pot, as you will only get strong hands to call you. A small bet will give any drawing hands good odds...

      It is a horrible turn card. I think I might check/fold it if he bets (or call a really small bet) :(

      It's OK to give up like this. You can always adjust your play if you see him betting all the time when you check river to him, but against unknown, this is perfectly fine.

      Hello NoriDare,

      I like your play here and not much we could do it differently whilst a lot of draws got there.

      Best Regards.

      Hello Veriz

      Thans for answer.
      I re-think that hand again and maybe even better to lay down on turn because 8:heart: already completes flash draws and also straight draws...
      No worse hand will call me on the turn I think.

      Thanks all for the advice.
