SB's flop bet looks pretty weak and so is his preflop raise (3bb) so with out any reads the average player at these levels could have a pretty big range here. I would raise the flop to ~$3 then go from there... if he bets out strongly again on the turn you could likely be beaten. If he checks I'd bet about half the pot on the turn. Not sure how good this is but thats how I would play it at the moment.

Just call the river. Looks like a weak blocking bet, but he still have KJ beaten. No point in raising. I like the rest of the hand but I would make it $3 on the turn.

Because if he calls, he will normally check the river - giving you a free showdown which is what you want here.

That makes a lot of sense.

I'm kinda curious, though, do we want him to call or not?

But this is kinda cool. It's a "turn blocking bet". Very neat.

Raise the flop, his weak bet means he has nothing or has you crushed better to find out on the flop. Also your turn bet is a bit small, though this is just nitpicking. Easy call on river getting 4:1. JMO
