      Hello,

      Preflop raise is fine.

      On the flop I do like cbetting and I'd make it $0.2.

      On the turn I do like your check back.
      I don't expect worse hands to call here if we bet, neither better hands are folding, so no reason in betting.
      Check back and see river is good.

      On the river I think betting will be close but since he checked we could try to bet something like $0.25 in order to get value out of PPs.
      In general checking back won't be a bad play but if we look forward to make those thin value bets we will increase our winrate significantly.

      Best,
      Plamen

      im not sure if hes capable of value beting river with Kx, Jx so I checked, but he may call flop some PP as you said.
      you would bet 0.2$ to chargo PP more?

      Hi there.

      If you think that he is not betting Kx/Jx checking is just fine.
      Although I don't really agree with that just because most people play pretty straight forward on these limits and if they have a pair they just bet.
      Also people have a hard time folding against small bets so you could use those two things in your advantage and get some extra value.

      I'd bet $0.2 on the flop just because it gains more "respect" - we get to win the pot more often win a closer to 2/3 bet, and also get more value out of PPs.
