      MP showed 9 J and lost (-$0.85 net)
      Hero mucked J K and won $1.65 ($0.80 net)

      Did I make a correct play against straight / flush draw on the river? On the flop and the turn I kept betting, especially he wanted to see the turn very cheap. But on the river, there was a straight / flush draw so I slowed down.

      Preflop I'd just make it 3bb considering his stack size.

      Raising the flop is fine.

      As played, he has less than pot size bet on the turn, so I'd just put the money in.

      On ther river there's no logical reason to check. He has 15 cents left so he's caling everything here and with two pair we are standing very good against his range.
