      MP: $40.67 (203.4 bb)
      CO: $18.30 (91.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $20 (100 bb)
      SB: $21.82 (109.1 bb)
      BB: $31.58 (157.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J A
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.60, Hero raises to $1.80, 2 folds, CO calls $1.20

      Flop: ($3.90) 6 9 7 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($3.90) 3 (2 players)
      CO bets $2, Hero calls $2

      I don't like my call here as I think I don't even have many implied odds. What if i thrown in a min raise and fold to further action? Or should I just fold this hand?

      River: ($7.90) T (2 players)
      CO bets $4, Hero folds

      Flop: I think betting is an option with nut backdoor flush draw and 2 over cards but checking to give up is certainly fine.

      Turn: It's between a call or fold. I don't think you rep too much by raising here. A call here is acceptable IMO. It's not so much about the implied, but rather because you just have so many outs to improve to a spade/A/J. and he is giving us great pot odds with a half pot bet.
