      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is UTG+1 with J:heart: J:spade:

      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $12[/color], CO folds.
      Uncalled bets: $12 returned to Hero.

      I think my play was ok up until the river, here I think that I might only be getting called/raised by better hands, so should have played check/call, lately one of the things I've struggled with a bit is when it is best to value bet (because so many players at this limit would still flat call the river with like AT) and when it's best to control the pot size. I think playing with stats would help a lot for decisions like this.

      I would go bet, bet, bet line.
      Maybe villain could find a way to pay off with T or 9.
      And I doubt that he would bet himself with T or 9 or 88 on the river.
      Villain could be out with missed straight, but since I don't know if villain is aggressive or passive, my line would be valuebets in all streets.
