      CO shows J:diamond: T:heart: (Two Pair, Jacks and Nines) (Pre 27%, Flop 26%, Turn 11%)
      Hero wins 71.24 BB

      Probably bad spot for cbet flop, especially that he folds 25% to cbet flop.
      Is it ok to bet turn with more outs (which are not clean)? Is value betting /fold ok? I think I get more value by check calling, since he often misses draw here and could bet? But then, only A8 misses, and all other have at least one pair. So I am not sure

      Flop cbet is very marginal but can be OK since we have the BD flush. Turn is actually semi-decent because he has fewer 9x, 97s, and sets in his range plus gives us some extra outs. Although it is not a scare card either, I think betting is fine.

      On the river I think most busted draws that reach the river have some showdown value as well.. 78, 76, 88, etc, therefore I think betting is better than checking and definitely fold if raised imo.
