      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is BU with T, 8.
      2 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, SB folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.35) 7, 9, J (3 players)
      BB bets $0.20, CO folds, Hero calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.75) A (2 players)
      BB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20.

      River: ($1.15) 9 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.20, Hero raises to $1, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.35.

      was thinking maybe there's better line to get more chips.. e.g. raise preflop or raise the flop or turn instead of slowplaying to the river??

      Yeah raise preflop would be better I think.

      As played I'd raise the flop, A:cX, K:cX would call for sure, and maybe more hands would pay you. Raise the turn also (the same hands would still pay you). Waiting until the river is bad I think, here you have the best possible hand and you really want to make a big pot, you should build it from the flop.

      I'd probably isolate with T8s here preflop.

      As played here you should raise on the flop, because that gets you value from draws aswell as made hands (draws will fold to a raise on the river). Also it gets you more value overall because you can bet more on the other streets compared to just a small raise on the river.
