      $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      6 players

      UTG ($25.00)
      UTG+1 ($40.17)
      CO ($24.65)------24/22/0.8 (45)
      Hero (BTN) ($44.40)
      SB ($28.14)
      BB ($45.49)

      Pre-flop: ($0.35, 6 players) Hero is BTN J:spade: K:spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.85, Hero raises to $2.50, 2 folds, CO calls $1.65

      Flop: 6:diamond: T:club: J:diamond: ($5.35, 2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $3, CO calls $3

      Turn: 9:diamond: ($11.35, 2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: 9:heart: ($11.35, 2 players)
      CO bets $11.35, Hero calls $11.35

      If he calls preflop, i dont think KJs often will have domination problems so i 3bet.
      Turn is ugly card. b/f or check behind?
      On the river i was thinking either he was trying to c/r turn and now betting for value or he was bluffing.
      Fold river?

      Without reads that he'll bluff somewhere in those 3-bet pots when shown weakness, i'd suggest bet/folding the turn, especially if you can't let go of your hand when he pots the river.

      That way you get to choose the bet size, you definitely can fold if he raises, you get value from some worse hands you otherwise wouldn't get, and even if you're beat you might induce him to delay his check/raise to the river if he thinks you'll bet again, which you shouldn't, so check behind and see the showdown in that spot.

      Hope it helps.
