      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 6.
      3 folds, CO raises to $0.06, BU folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.18) 2, J, 4 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($0.18) 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.12, CO calls $0.12, SB folds.

      River: ($0.42) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.42.

      i think river K actually gives me credit cos it seems like I'm value betting Jx. if he has Kx I'm doh'ed. but if villain has Jx or above would he check flop w 3 players??

      once he called turn I am convinced he had something to showdown.

      odds on river is 0.2 to win 0.42, i shouldn't need to win too often to make this play +ev.

      if you were me, how would you play this hand?

      Preflop: I don't think the call is standard. You must feel that you have an edge on at least one of them postflop, if not the call is not good.

      Turn: I think the Turn bet is good.

      River: I think it's good to bluff here. CO could have a busted flush draw, and the King is a card which helps you more than it helps him, assuming that he calls the turn with a hand like 88-TT or 7X. The king changes the board more and while you could be betting the turn with any two cards, he probably has more of a medium strength hand.
