      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, J.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.17, SB folds, BB calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.36) J, 5, 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.36, Hero calls $0.36.

      Turn: ($1.08) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.08, Hero calls $1.08.

      River: ($3.24) Q (2 players)
      BB bets $3.93, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.24.

      player is known to have ideal aggression and slightly loose. what could we put him on? is my TPTK good enough for a call on the turn? should i have re-raised the flop?

      It's top pair second top kicker.

      It does look like he has a strong hand, Trips IMO. He called you preflop (set mined) and raised every street, in which case you have to give him credit.
      This is read/stat dependent IMO, Would he really do this with a missed flush draw?

      Never call that bet on the river. Put his range into PokerStove and you will see you are behind often.

      I have no idea what it means to have "ideal aggression".

      If he's some random aggro fish i'm calling down, if he's a reg i'm folding the river even tho it's weird for him not to check/raise that flop with a set where it's hard for you to have anything, most regs on nl5 still aren't anywhere good at poker.

      Hope it helps.
