I had only played one orbit prior to this hand and was still using default reads on players. Preflop raise was actually $10 (still too small to thin field) but I adjusted for the rake. I decided to deviate from std line and flat instead of raising.
When the J comes in on the turn, and the BB bets out, I only called. Is this a monsters under the bed situation or would it have been better to go ahead and raise here?
Going to the river, I have both SB and BB with ranges 44, 99, JJ, JTs, J9s, 78s. Being a low stakes table some combos of KQ, Q8, JTo, J9o, 78o may be in there too. When the J pairs on the river and the BB bets $100, into two players that have already put money in on the flop and turn, I am thinking some lower straight combos go away.
In the moment flat calling felt too passive but raising felt super strong. I was wrestling with would any straights and/or lower full houses still call if I raised. I decided the answer was yes and ended up shoving. I'd appreciate comments on the hand as played. Thanks.
