      Hey guys, Villain is 26/10 after 100 hands. I actually think that I played it ok, but I need confirmation, since similar thing happened to me like 8 times in single session. Or should I play it differently?

      You block hands that connect with the flop holding a jack.
      But you have to think what to do if villain comes up with a big raise. OTF would be a shove with the nutflushdraw, because you hold something like 50% equity.
      OTT I prefer to take the conservative approach. If you bet again and he shoves it's an easy fold, just like you did. You're gettting 2.2 odds roughly, and that's not good enough to pursuit your draw.
      I'd rather check-call against an unknown. I think a check-raise won't work here because it's NL5.
      I'm only double barreling this if I have stats on him that corroborates that play, i.e, high % on fold to turn cbet.

      I don't know why check/raise "wouldn't work because it's NL5".
      I think it's close between more or less every options on the turn here, depends on villain, dynamic etc, and as played fold and don't beat yourself up reminding it, next hand !

      A player that calls your 3bet PF, calls your cbet OTF, bets after you check OTT and folds to a check-raise?
      I haven't seen one.

      I didn't know it was a special and rare species of players that couldn't develop well in an NL5 natural environment. But I'm no ethologist expert.
