      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.20) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, BB calls $1.00.

      I think probably I should have just folded pre-flop, but once I hit the flush, did I play it ok? Once he called on the turn I was fairly sure that he must have a club.

      Tricky spot. I think you played it fine on the flop, but for SSS, the judges will tell you never to limp in as SB. If the hand's not in the starting hands chart you have to sit on your hands rather than click 'call' however tempting it is...

      One of the reasons for that is that you end up in all sorts of tricky marginal spots like this one which end up costing you - rather than making you - money in the long run.

      Good luck,
      Tim

      Fold preflop.

      As played, flop is well played, but on the turn I would shut down because every club has you beat now(except 2 :club: and 3 :club: , but those are on the board) and I don't think villain is betting turn or river without a club.

      Btw, I would advise you to leave the table with 25+BBs.
