      BTN: $12.28 (307 bb)
      BB: $3.79 (94.8 bb)
      CO: $9.02 (225.5 bb)
      Hero (MP): $8.01 (200.3 bb)
      SB: $5.96 (149 bb)
      UTG: $3.90 (97.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J J
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, SB calls $0.10, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.28) K 5 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.27, Hero calls $0.27

      Turn: ($0.82) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.82) 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.78, Hero calls $0.78

      $2.38 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: K 5 3 4 9
      Hero showed J J and won $2.27 ($1.10 net)
      SB showed 8 A and lost (-$1.17 net)

      villain is fairly loose over 50 hands and hasnt raised many preflop. Afq = 50

      is it fine to assume once he checks the turn he probably doesnt have Kx and that i should check back (in case he checkraises/folds everything but a stronger hand) and call a blank river? or should i value bet this turn vs his FDs and shut down on the river if he calls the turn?

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop looks fine and I would call there as well.

      On the turn I prefer to bet for thin value/protection (we are folding to a ck/raise). His range can have smaller pairs and draws and then we give ourselves a good option on the river (bet or check back).

      AS played calling river is fine because he isn't really repping anything other than a big slowplay or 99.

      thanks. the reason i didn't bet the turn is because i don't want a fold... i mean whenever someone 2nd barrels here i tend to just give credit but once they check their range becomes really weak generally so i just thought i'd give him a river to stab on rather than just push him out when i have a hand. if i had air i'd consider raising the flop but i'd definitely stab with a FD on the turn given the FE...

      should i not be worried about people folding and just bet out for value? even if they might stab really light on the river?
