      Hi,


      Just pot the flop for value against all pairs and draws out there.

      As played the turn Td is among the worst cards in the deck, depending on how likely you think SB is to call again with Jx you might want to bet/fold to 2/3 pot or check it back.

      As played the river is just awful, anything that called you on the flop made a flush, a straight or two pairs at that point, we beat nothing. Just fold and be happy about it, you're virtually never good.


      Hope it helps.
