      $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      6 players

      UTG ($6.35)
      UTG+1 ($8.99)
      CO ($50.20)
      Hero (BTN) ($25.00)
      SB ($33.76)------45/12/6 (50)
      BB ($32.22)

      Pre-flop: ($0.35, 6 players) Hero is BTN J:spade: K:diamond:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.25, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.25, SB calls $1.15, 1 fold, UTG+1 calls $1

      Flop: 4:heart: 8:club: J:diamond: ($4, 3 players)
      SB bets $1, UTG+1 folds, Hero calls $1

      Turn: K:heart: ($6, 2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero calls $1

      River: A:heart: ($8, 2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Too passive?
      Raise flop? I dont think so.
      Raise turn? Well i guess so.
      How played, min-raise river for value? :)

      I would always raise those mindonks on the flop - it doesn't matter if I hit or not (unless I have a read that it's the sign of strength - usually it's not).
      So I raise flop to 3,5$ - 4$ and after improving I continue barelling turn and river.

      As played I would certainly raise turn, and if you just call raise the river. Calling might be good with weak J.

      I'd just raise the flop even tho when he 3bets it sucks. Most of the time he doesn't have much when he does that unless he's always betting the same amount in every hand, but even then until proven otherwise our KJ stands to be good against the range of a 42/12. He'll have worse Jx, 8x, T9, he might even call with worse than that who knows, just raise :p

      Once we hit two pairs it's even more reasons to raise for value, i'm not folding that to him at this point.

      Hope it helps.
