      Hey Kalimann,

      Your hand is not strong enough to get value on all 3 streets, although you do bet very small so your value bets are ok. You certainly don't want to be bluffing with a hand this strong because it's unlikely villain will fold anything better.

      The best option will likely be to check the turn, check/call or check/fold depending on villains tendencies.
