      Stacks:
      UTG ($10.24) 102bb 62/26, AF: 2.1, 50h
      UTG+1 ($14.63) 146bb
      CO ($18.47) 185bb
      BTN ($7) 70bb 50/19, 43h
      HERO (SB) ($10) 100bb
      BB ($6.72) 67bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) HERO is SB 9:diamond: 9:spade:
      UTG raises to $0.20, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.20, HERO calls $0.15, 1 fold

      Flop: K:club: 10:spade: 10:diamond: ($0.70, 3 players)
      HERO checks, UTG checks, BTN checks

      Turn: 2:heart: ($0.70, 3 players)
      HERO bets $0.50, UTG calls $0.50, BTN folds

      River: 8:spade: ($1.70, 2 players)
      HERO checks, UTG bets $1, HERO?

      PRE
      I guess, I had to 3-bet for value, but calling is not too bad anyway.

      FLOP
      Plan is to value-bet the turn, after it checks down.

      TURN
      OR probably is calling with gutshots, not sure, if he would check Kx on the flop.

      RIVER
      He could play busted draws this way, so call?

      Hello,

      Just check/fold the turn. We don't need to go into marginal spots being OOP with these kind of hands, as we are likely to lose a lot of money.

      As played, I would check/fold the river.

      Best,
      Plamen

      What would you do with jacks on the turn given we called them preflop? They are almost equal to 99 if I'm not missing anything. Though it could be a better idea to 3bet them preflop I think.

      Yeah, JJ should be a 3bet preflop, but anyways - you are right about that JJ are equal to 99 in this spot.

      So having this said, we should play the jacks equally to the nines, so I would simply give up there as well, just because there are hardly worse hands to call us here.
