      Preflop: Gerv is Button with J, J
      UTG bets $1, 1 fold, CO calls $1, Gerv raises $5, 2 folds, UTG calls $4, 1 fold

      Flop: ($11.75) K, 3, T (2 players)

      Turn: ($17.75) K (2 players)

      UTG bets $5, Gerv calls $5

      Total pot: $37.75
      Main pot: $37.75 between Gerv and UTG, won by Gerv

      Gerv had J, J (two pair, Kings and Jacks).
      UTG had 4, A (one pair, Kings).
      Outcome: Gerv won $35.95

      I showed the results because I want to know where I can get extra value out of here. Do I raise it small on the Turn because of the 2nd king? Do I raise smallish on the River but then possible facing a shove or sth like that where I have to puke and still call?

      I think you´re ahead on the hand, but only way I can see where you could raise is on the river to get more value with Tx and if he shoves you have to fold, but I doubt that would almost never happen
      But until you know which lines which take with his strong- , weak hands or bluffs better to go just to showdown
