      Known players:

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:spade: , J:diamond:
      5 folds, BU raises to $0,20, Hero raises to $0,60, BB folds, BU calls $0,40.

      Flop: ($1,25) K:heart: , T:spade: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,80, BU raises to $1,60, Hero calls $0,80.

      Is it ok to call on the flop and reevaluate the river? Now thinking about it my hand would improve just in case i hit J. And if he is a good player, he would call me pf with TT, JJ, QQ, AK maybe AQ in which case I am again way behind. So fold after reraise?

      My standard if I decide to c-bet middling second pairs i usually to just fold to a raise out of position barring some reads that villain is unlikely to play top pairs like that but is able to fastplay any kind of draw. It's just not worth continuing with a possible 2-outers when you have no idea what is going on, most players need a made hand that beats yours to get excited enough to raise. Especially since these days everyone loves to flat KK+ in his spot preflop to play it exactly like that on the flop.

      Hope it helps.
