      Hero (SB): $5.00 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2.0, Hands: 66278

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is SB with A :spade: J :club:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.20, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.55) J :diamond: Q :spade: 3 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.34, Hero calls $0.34

      Turn: ($1.23) 5 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.59,

      I had the feeling this is the right way to play this hand. Flop: rather let him bet, I have MP. Turn: dont want him check behind. If he raises, I see myself behind

      Hello,

      Your preflop play is good here.

      Don't really like your play postflop at all.

      I think we just have to stick with bet/bet since there are weaker hands that could call us and we don't really want to give any free cards on this draw-heavy board.

      As played on the turn, what is your plan if the river is Tc?

      Best,

      He looks aggro, so he's going to bet everything he'd call my cbet+many bluffs, so it's +ev to induce.

      If river is Tc: check.call I see him betting with enough hands, and again, he is aggro, let him do the betting

      Ok,

      I agree that he's probably going to bet a lot here, but then when we check/call we kind of make our hand faced-up and I don't really expect people to mindlessly barrel here.
      Also he could just check back and get a free card.

      The way I see it, we are only putting ourselves into a tough spot where it will be hard for us to make money and very very easy to lose some.

      My other leaks would be, that I dont tend to valuebet with middle-pairs. ,,It has showdown value", and I have a feeling constantly that I isolate myself against Qx. This is silly, right?

      Yeah, I do agree with this one here.
      There are worse hands that can call us here especially when we have the A kicker.
