      Hero (SB): $6.91 (138.2 bb)
      BB: $8.69 (173.8 bb)
      MP: $4.07 (81.4 bb)
      CO: $5.42 (108.4 bb)
      BTN: $5 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J K
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.30) T 9 J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BB raises to $0.40, Hero folds

      $0.70 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: T 9 J
      Hero mucked J K and lost (-$0.35 net)
      BB mucked and won $0.67 ($0.32 net)

      Villain is almost completely unknown at the time of this hand (30/10 in 10 hands). I didn't even want to bet the flop, cause i can't bet/call, and i will get raised here a lot by draws/worse made hands, and i'm often folding the best hand.

      But if i just check/call, what to do on turns? Donk non-spade, non-ace turns, or check/call on them again?

      Preflop there's nothing much to comment on - easy raise.

      Betting the flop is mandatory here and if we check we will make a big mistake.
      I'd personally bet $0.25 here and fold to a raise. We can't really call here since we don't know how to play on the later streets and if we call we just invest 4bb to have a hard time playing on both turn and river and risk to loose even more.
