      Button ($14.45)
      SB ($11.12)
      Hero (BB) ($14.58)
      UTG ($10)
      MP ($10.31)
      CO ($10)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, 7
      2 folds, CO bets $0.30, Button calls $0.30, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) 8, 9, 7 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, 1 fold, Button calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.35) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.35, Button calls $1.35

      River: ($5.05) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Total pot: $7.05 | Rake: $0.32

      I thought the Turn is a b/f because I think he can call all his Jacks maybe with nutsdraw (QJ) once more. River should better be a fold then.

      Hey Jazzy29,

      I slightly prefer a check/call on turn. Even if villain has a made straight you still have a very strong draw.

      It's true villain may call turn with 2pair sometimes, but won't necessarily pay off two streets. If villain checks back the turn you can still go for one street of value anyway on the river.

      As played I think river call is fine just because you get an excellent price and I can see villain value betting a hand like J9 for this amount.
