      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $1.00
      BB:
      $4.53
      MP1:
      $0.50
      MP2:
      $0.24
      MP3:
      $2.00
      CO:
      $1.06
      BU(Hero):
      $2.23


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, J.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) 9, 9, J (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.17) T (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, BB calls $0.10.

      River: ($0.37) T (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.14, BB calls $0.14.

      Final Pot: $0.65.


      I probably should have given up on the river and i should have made a C-bet on the flop right? The other player is a pretty tight player, and he has been playing pretty well, the hands he does play.

      I think you post your hand on wrong forum, because your hand is BSS and you have more than 100BB in your stack.

      In your play. You have a TPTK in flop. Make a c-bet in flop.

      Hi,


      C-bet the flop for value against Jx/flushdraws/straightdraws, bet the turn again for the same reasons even tho some of the straightdraws got there.

      His most likely hand by the river is Jx or a busted flushdraw, bet the river for value again unless you have a good reason not to, like

      - he's passive enough to c/c 9x all the way
      - he's tight enough to fold a worse Jx on the river
      - he's trappy enough to c/c c/r a monster

      Here your read is "pretty tight", which means checking behind is likely fine, provided of course that you bet flop/turn before that.

      If you get raised somewhere just dump it against a tight guy.


      Hope it helps.
