      Hi all,

      I've taken a long break from poker, just getting back into it. Just wondering how you would play the following hand:

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $0.45
      SB:
      $2.78
      BB:
      $3.27
      UTG1:
      $5.12
      UTG2:
      $4.59
      MP1:
      $2.46
      MP2 (Hero):
      $2.03
      MP3:
      $2.18
      CO:
      $3.28


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, T.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 5 folds, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.23) K, J, T (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.16, UTG2 calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.55) Q (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.55) 6 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.52, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.55.

      I didn't think i'd be beating anything on the turn other than bluffs and flush draws, maybe any Kx hands as well. Should I have bet here to protect against these kind of hands and also to make my decision easier on the river?

      As played, is the fold on the river correct?
