      I see alot of players protect holdings such as yours with a preflop raise of around 0.40. This is a definite show of strengh. Give oppents something to fear about. The possiblity of taking down the pot right then and there exists. In this instance the flop looks very dangerous. There are possible flush and straight draws. Your opponent had the odds and outs to continue. Especially hitting the 10 and placing the jack. He had two possible ways to win. He almost made the straight! Position is a problem here. Your out,he's in. In order for him not to continue, he needs to think you hit on the flop. With a bet pot size or greater should give him something to think about. That would mess up his odds as well. At that limit most players "go for it" anyway. After that if he takes down the pot,he deserves the win. Can't check raise here either. He would take the free card. I believe your intent was correct, the amounts were off abit. In this instance fate may have delt you one as well. Good luck in the future.

      Bet more on flop since its drawy, on the turn you will call his shove so its better for you to put him all in first I guess.

      As played is OK, but as others have already mentioned you could bet a bit more on the flop.
