So I'm playing at the local club in Chinatown. The game is 1-2 NLHE min. 100 no max buy-in. The game is ultra-loose aggressive, and I'm the only real tight player at the table. However, I talk a lot of shit, I'm 10 years younger than anybody else at the table, other then my buddy, and I wear a cowboy hat :-) . Anyways, all these factors have led to me getting absolutely no respect, although on this particular night, the only 3 hands I've shown down have been a flopped straight flush, aces full, and a set of kings.So here's the hand:Guy UTG makes it 12, he's sitting on about 300. He's one of the more solid players at the table. I beat him with Kings to his Aces all-in before the flop earlier so I think he might be coming after me a bit. But I give him credit here for a good hand, 10 10-AA or AK or maybe AQ.I look down at two jacks, and seriously consider re-raising. Against most players here, I would given that is likely the best hand, but this time, I just call and take a flop. One other loose passive player calls in the CO. I have 230 here btw.The flop comes 78J, rainbow. At this point, I like my hand, but I'm not in love with it. The guy in the CO scares me more then anything. So UTG bets out 15 into the 37 pot, I contemplate just smooth calling, but want to price out any draws and know the CO will call with a gutshot here. So I raise it to 40 total. CO folds and UTG doesn't look to happy but calls quickly. Pot's 117.The turn is a 10, but still with no flush draws. He checks, and I check it right back, wanting him to think I'm just as scared of the straight as he is. The river is a queen, and I'm afraid that he may have made a set. He checks it to me again, but I decide he just has a small pair and make a small value bet of 25....I think I played this hand OK, but I'm not sure about my turn and river play. Please give your thoughts on each streets and let me know if you have any more questions about the hand in all.
