The Poker Meister #60 - Lucky turn

From the Rush tables:

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players
The Official DeucesCracked.com Hand History Converter

MP2: $44.25
CO: $30.70
Hero (BTN): $117.20
SB: $62.10
BB: $67.35
UTG: $36.05
UTG+1: $37.05
UTG+2: $83.50
MP1: $59.90

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with 9d Jd
4 folds, MP2 raises to $1, 1 fold, Hero raises to $4.50, SB calls $4.25, 2 folds
MP min-raisers almost ALWAYS have nothing. They usually fold to a 3bet.

Flop: ($10.50) 6c 3d 2c (2 players)
SB bets $5, Hero calls $5
Half pot bet is kind of weak on this fairly coordinated board.

Turn: ($20.50) 9s (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $10, SB calls $10
I feel like top pair is good enough to go here. I'm worried about a 4, 5, or club hitting the river, so I want some value now, but not enough that I can't get away from the hand.

River: ($40.50) 3c (2 players)
SB checks, Hero checks
Given his lines, I honestly don't think he's calling with anything that doesn't beat me. Therefore, I check behind.

Final Pot: $40.50
Hero shows 9d Jd (two pair, Nines and Threes)
SB mucks 8h 8c
Hero wins $38.50
(Rake: $2.00)
