      CO: $2.12
      BTN: $3.94
      SB: $2.70
      BB: $2.93

      Hero (UTG+1): $4.75
      MP: $4.17

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.06) Hero has J:diamond: J:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.16, MP calls $0.16, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.50, 3 players) 3:heart: 6:club: 2:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.38, MP calls $0.38, fold

      Turn: ($1.26, 2 players) A:heart:
      Hero bets $0.84, fold

      Hero wins $1.18

      FLOP: I'm value beting because I think lower pocket pairs will call here, and higher would reraise me preflop.

      TURN: When he calls flop bet I'm thinking of him maybe slowplaying a set so I'm basicly beting to see where I'm at. I think I still can represent AK/AQ kind of hand and lower pocket pair will fold here, and if he calls or raises me then I'm probably beat, so I'm check/folding to the end.

      Is my thinking process OK here, or I should think diferently?

      Betting flop is good as he can call with lower pockets than yours and random broadways. You don't have to always think about slowplayed sets. Turn b/f seems like good play as I doubt he could raise turn with worse hands than your. Imho nh, but I may be wrong.

      your play there is very standard and fine
      although don´t think he would call too many worse hands on the turn, but since you´re also bluffing there quite often I like valuebet with JJ
