      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:diamond: , A:spade:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, SB calls $0,90, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2,25) T:spade: , 5:diamond: , K:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1,60, SB calls $1,60.

      Turn: ($5,45) Q:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

        Here I thought he has a pair of kings or something like that and that he MAYBE improved to a two pair on the turn. I checked the turn(wishing no spadeon the river) to induce a bet on the river and raise, so that villain would not believe my raise so that he would call or oven shove on me.

      River: ($5,45) 7:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $3,09, Hero raises to $10,83, SB calls $7,74.

      Final Pot: $27,11

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a straight, ace high (Jd As)
      SB shows a pair of queens (Qd Ac)

      Hero wins with a straight, ace high (Jd As)

      Is this a good play and how does it reflect on a long run ?
