      BTN: $6.38 (127.6 bb)
      SB: $4.71 (94.2 bb)
      BB: $17.66 (353.2 bb)
      UTG: $0.77 (15.4 bb)
      Hero (MP): $8.16 (163.2 bb)
      CO: $10.71 (214.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J J
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.15, CO folds, BTN calls $0.15, SB raises to $0.50, BB folds, Hero calls $0.35, BTN folds

      Flop: ($1.20) 2 3 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55

      Turn: ($2.30) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40

      River: ($5.10) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.26 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.26

      BU is 29/25 over 24 hands, SB is 43/43 over 8 hands.

      Should I get away from this hand on either the turn or river? I feel like the river might be a fold. But then again, judging by his stack size he might be a bit fishy and could maybe do this with some worse overpairs? Or is that wishful thinking?

      What's best here?

      Hi.

      This is a tough one. I dont feel like folding turn but at the same time you would probably be committed on most rivers. If there was more than a half pot bet left on the river, i wouldnt mind call turn fold river but as played it looks more like a call down or a fold turn type of spot.

      Given that he does seem to be on the looser side ill call down.

      Thanks.

      Thanks!

      Let's say you had TT or 99 in this spot though. Would you still call down, or would you then definitely give up on the river?

      99 is probably a fold, and I think TT is a break-even call based on the info provided.
