[2nl]Set of jacks vs scary turn
To add: I know its 2nl and I may be giving my opponent a lot of credit, but until I have a better read on them and how they play, I usually give them the benefit of a doubt.

...I dont like this min-raise here. It can be QQ-AA, AK, AQ possibly. I havent played many hands at this table yet and I've only seen this player player a few hands, no showdown.
Lady noa: folds
TRM_SHRiMP: calls $0.08
...I decide to just call here and see if I hit a set on the flop.
§exyHoney: calls $0.08
axelo: calls $0.08
*** FLOP *** [9d Jc Qh]
janlemmi: bets $0.20
...Very small bet here. Looks like a probe bet more than anything.
TRM_SHRiMP: raises $0.40 to $0.60
...Small raise here. If my opponent is holding 99, QQ-AA, AQ, QJ, KQ maybe-I want them to shove here. Of course I dont want to see QQ, but if its set over set-thats ok.
janlemmi: calls $0.40
...With just a call, I can probably assume opponent isn't holding 99, QQ-AA, AQ, QJ as I would expect flop bet to be bigger and/or opponent to come over the top-unless they're slow playing them. AK, AJ, A10, K10 JK, Q10, J10, 910 are all possible drawing hands opponent can be holding. With the exception of K10, I can see my opponent calling with a draw or pair + draw.
*** TURN *** [9d Jc Qh] K♥
§exyHoney is sitting out

...Since a scare card hits, I check to see if a free river and try to fill up.
*** RIVER *** [9d Jc Qh Kh] 4♠
...Seeing as my opponent checked with a possible straight on the board, what do do I do here? I beat a lot of possible hands my opponent can be holding, but is it too soft for check my JJJ here and play it safe?
