Don't be scared that they may have a set. It is a possibility and your opponent will let you know by check / raising at some point. Here in this spot maybe they are scared you have hearts for instance.

I would bet the J turn 40c or more if you want. Your opponent may not understand they need 11-1 on their gut shot draw.

OK, so they hit the miracle card now did we have a plan to give up to a donk bet on the river? Or if they check and we bet give up to a raise?

Lots to learn here at PSO so don't be too hard on yourself.
