      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB = ($2.00)
      BB = ($9.13)

      MP2 = ($3.76)
      MP3 = ($1.98)
      CO = ($10.00)
      BU = ($2.67)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with T, T.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 5 folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) 2, 3, J (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.92.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, tens and eights(T T).
      BB shows two pairs, jacks and eights(J 7).

      BB wins with two pairs, jacks and eights(J 7).

      I wasn't sure what to do when he min raised so I called and when he bet the river I figured I had to call that too when I was getting 10-to-1

      Hard to say anything without the suits and no reads.

      If flop is rainbow you're likely better off making a cheaper c-bet to encourage non Jx hands to come along unless he's a big calling station.

      On the turn it's even thinner of a valuebet but still doable, when he minraises you're toast more often than not unless you have reason to believe he's randomly aggressive, continuing with a 2-outer won't show a profit.

      As played on the river calling is fine.

      Hope it helps.
