SB: 20 hands, 22/17/14, WWSF:0/2

Should I go for value OTR? Maybe 1,2 dollars?

Hero (Button) ($5.68)
SB ($14.84)
BB ($0.98)
UTG ($6.64)
MP ($5.51)
CO ($7.57)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 7, 6
3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.10, 1 fold

Flop: ($0.29) J, 4, 9 (2 players)
SB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

Turn: ($0.69) Q (2 players)
SB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.20, SB calls $0.70

River: ($3.09) J (2 players)
SB checks

EDITED: There was a J missing.

Looks to me like SB has a straight or a set when he calls the turn, i would bet and fold to a shove. I cant see him shoving weaker flushes that he might decide to flat your turn raise with so i think its a bet fold.

Hi brave,

I definitely like value betting here, especially when the board pairs the top flop card, as SB should have a lot of top pairs in his range donking the flop, so this is a card that gets us paid off. I think about $2 is right and fold to a check/shove. While trips is strong enough to call, only someone suicidal would check/shove them on this board with the strength we've shown, and in his 20 hands of data he hasn't been maniacal or suicidal it seems, so I expect he's only check/shoving boats here mostly.

Thank you!

Even though my theme was light betting, I failed this hand. I would guess this is kind of basic value betting situation, but unlike Dave who saw an opportunity I got cold feet when the 2nd J came up.
