      No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (9 handed)

      saw flop

      UTG+1 ($65.05)


      Hero (BB) ($20)


      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, 9
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $1, 6 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($2.50) K, Q, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($4.50) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $1, Hero calls $1

      River: ($6.50) 10 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, UTG+1 calls $3


      Obvious UTG is a fish nevertheless I was doubting between leading out myself or check/raising or check/calling on the Flop & Turn. The T gives me not much value but should I valuebet big against this guy to like $5?

      Moreover with 12 outs, I think i better had started to lead out but the fear of being raised kept me from doing it.
