      BU stats 33/8 AF:1 after 12 hands.

      I bet on the turn smaller for pot control and because this is pretty dry board. I think on the river he can have J9,JT,QJ,KJ,AJ 68s and maybe J8. I think betting ~2$ on the river is good, what do you think?

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I'd bet $0.7.

      On the turn I prefer betting around $1.9-$2.

      As played, without reads that he'd call you down with weak Jx here I'd rather check/fold here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I like betting small, it will be easier to get hero called by 88 99 or A7. At the same time we lose less when he has slowplayed something or has AJ/JT.

      When we bet small with the weaker part of our value range we need to know that our sizing might make villain try to bluff raise us but at NL10 people aren't turning made hands into bluffs. It's something to keep in mind though.
