      $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      6 players

      Stacks:
      UTG ($25.35)
      UTG+1 ($33.34)
      Hero (CO) ($27.47)
      BTN ($25.00)
      SB ($24.75)
      BB ($17.27)-----35/15/inf (25h)

      Pre-flop: ($0.35, 6 players) Hero is CO 6:spade: 6:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: 2:spade: J:spade: 6:club: ($2.10, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.25, BB raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1.25

      Turn: 4:spade: ($7.10, 2 players)
      BB bets $1, Hero calls $1

      River: Q:spade: ($9.10, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      He folds Jx and FD on the flop if i 3bet i believe. So i just call. Maybe im wrong.
      Turn: ugly card!! :) Im confused since then.
      What would be optimal play?End everything on the flop?

      It's better if you don't tell us what your opponent had because it's affects the judging of the hand.
      first of all bet more on the flop, something like 1.5$. then I would 3bet his raise to protect my hand from the FD.

      Hello,

      Flop: Bet more, ~$1.50 and 3bet him and try to get money in.

      As played
      Turn & River are fine.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Bet higher flop.

      Re-raise him


      It is not your objective to try to keep him in the hand to try to get more value. Slowplaying strong hands is bad on wet boards.... very bad.
      The turn shuts you down.

      If you re-raise him and he still calls the turn won't be that much of an issue anymore since it is likely that he won't have a flush and he also knows that it is unlikely that you will have a flush. Hence now you can value bet the turn and he might still call.

      Play your strong hands fast on wet boards. On low limits fish will not fold top pair easily

      Because board is a little drawy and once he c/r he´d likely call your small 3-bet I´d likely just raise to 7$ and try to get all-in on the flop or turn.
