      Hero (SB): $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $12.09 (120.9 bb)
      UTG: $10.29 (102.9 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $11.01 (110.1 bb)
      BTN: $10.15 (101.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J J
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.70) J 6 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Planning to slowplay. If he has a draw I expect him to C-bet.

      Turn: ($0.70) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP calls $0.50

      I'm only scared of 78 here but I think he won't have it as he would have cbet flop. e could be calling with a now flush draw, QT is the only other straight draw, don't think he'd have that ver often. He could perhaps even have an over card kind of hand with a small pair.

      River: ($1.70) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, MP raises to $4, Hero raises to $9.20 and is all-in

      River I'm betting for value and his raise is a bit strange. He could be bluffing I guess or could have had a made hand that he was alowplaying all along. I think I've already removed 78 from his range and I highly doubt he had 47 or 24. So I decide to raise for value against other slowplayed made hands. bluffs will fold no matter what I raise anyway.
