      The reason i called preflop was that i was raising his blinds quite often, so i thought that he was restealing. When he checked, i thought that he was really just restealing and so i decided to turn my hand into a bluff and bet. (i didnt bet much because i thought that it would be enough to get him off his hand, if he had air) Turn was a great card (well, not really...) for me, putting him on a hand like AQs..

      if he wants to resteal , won't he cbet the flop ?

      Not necessarily.. some players just give up after you call them preflop. They feel like they have done enough to get rid of you so they just c/f..
      Some players on NL5 have also never heard of cbetting.

      so if this villain isn't aware even of cbetting , i doubt he would be aware of restealing ( stealing is to open first from CO / BTN or SB while restealing is to raise knowing a person is stealing)

      when you hit your miracle card on the turn , its hard not to go broke. Especially when it completes a possible flush draw ( which might be what he called flop with )

      a better play would be to check back the flop . If you bet and he check raises ?

      you will lose value from hands like 77s - TTs . which u might have gotten value from the turn and river as he would perceive you checking behind to mean you don't have the King

      I wasnt sure how much of a retard he was.. i mean, if you raise someones blind every other orbit, even the biggest donk in the world must be thinking "He cant have a hand everytime, can he? I'm gonna raise then. Oh shit he called, omg omg i have to give up, i dont wanna commit anymore money here."

      But yeah, checking behind would be better, i agree.

      I would likely played the same way
      JJ should be strong enough to 3-bet pf and since he may c/c flop with worse hands, like TT and would likely c/f hand like AQ I don´t mind b/f flop
      Turn check is fine as also river shove. Just a cooler
