      BTN: $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $4.21 (84.2 bb)
      BB: $4.19 (83.8 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $5.03 (100.6 bb)
      MP: $5 (100 bb)
      CO: $4.71 (94.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J J
      Hero raises to $0.20, 4 folds, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.42) 9 J A (2 players)
      BB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.60, BB calls $0.35

      Turn: ($1.62) 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.75, BB calls $0.75

      River: ($3.12) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3, BB folds

      $3.12 pot ($0.13 rake)
      Final Board: 9 J A 3 T
      BB mucked and lost (-$1.55 net)
      Hero mucked J J and won $2.99 ($1.44 net)

      The guy was 52/14 so my goal was to extract the most value I could vs Ax, two pair hands, I know there are draws I need to protect from, but draws didn't bother me that much, because he would probably go all in with them, I wanted to make sure I get the best out of the hands that I already beat, so which places in the hand could be played different and how much to bet.

      I'd extract that value on turn and bet river smaller so he could really call with weak ace or move with busted draw. That pot-size bet on river+one draw completing usually drives even fishes away :/

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Raise the flop bigger, bet the turn bigger and would have gained a lot more value, even able to shove the river more easier. ;)

      Best Regards.
