      Hey lollujo,

      flop is well played, in freeplays you can play top pair with J+ kicker aggressively. On the turn, I would bet 0.80$ and fold to a raise, because it's a very ugly turn card and basically every draw completed and with two opponents it's very likely one of them was drawing.

      Pushing turn as played is also not bad, but I would recommend to bet/fold instead.
