      Table with unkown players.

      Pocket pair: J :spade: J :heart:

      I bet 0,50 pre-flop (4X BB + 1 limper), 1 caller

      Flop: 3 :spade: , 8 :heart: , A :spade:

      I know that the basic strategy tells me to fold, as I don't have a top pair.

      Though shouldn't I post a continuation bet in this case?

      Game continued thus:
      I bet 0,60 and got a call again.

      Turn: 4 :spade: (now there is a possible flush on the table)

      Still I pushed all in, got a call and River came with J :diamond:

      I beat the caller's A :diamond: + J :spade:

      By sheer luck though, as for the most time he had top pair.

      Ok, playing NL10, your stack couldn't have been bigger than 2,50.

      If you bet 0,50 pre-flop. You had 2,00 maximum left on the flop. A c-bet should usually be 2/3 of the pot. What was the pot then, 1,10 - 1,20 maybe?

      So, you'd have to bet 0,70 - 0,80. I say, just shove it on the flop. He only beats you if he has an A. And there are so many other games that he might be holding, that you're probably ahead.

      Cheers
