      Uncalled bets: $8.5 returned to Button.

      I don't think i can't let a J fold here, so I just c/c medium bets and try to keep it cheap till the showdown.. River bet seemed like a kicker that paired, so i fold..

      I think on every street except the river bet, raise or fold are much better options than a check/call.

      Against unknown I prefer a raise at the flop and after that undangerous looking 4 on the turn an other bet.

      As played I think a check/raise at the turn to that pot stealing looking bet from button seems also fine (Against unknown a full house is only a part of his range, he bets here every AJxx and even worser Jacks, sometimes total air like 89Tx)

      hm I like flatting the flop and raising a save looking turn, too since it'll keep weaker draws like strange wraps in the hand
