      I checked behind on the flop since I put 88/JJ in the range of tight looking BB and did not want to get ch/R. is that too paranoid and should I just value bet here?

      On the River, I decided that CO was not value betting worse here and folded. Specifically I considered may have checked a flush draw on the flop (to avoid getting raised off it). But maybe he just bluffs the obvious scare-card?

      bet flop and deal with c/r when it is coming, most of the times it is going to be c/f or c/c so don´t really see why you shouldn´t bet flop top pair ip
      I would call river, since I think UTG would mostly bet out flop with flushdraws and he may also picked up heart draw on the turn

      So Kaitz20,
      CO is - in your opinion - bluffing here often enough or vbetting Jx or worse Kx, for us to call?

      thanks

      Not really sure he is valuebetting too many worse hands, but consider flop went c/c, he just called turn and now bets river. I think if he slowplayed he would raise turn lead, if he had flushdraw, he should mostly bet flop, so unless he has smt like 86 I think he can´t really valuebet too many better hands than yours, which is the reason I would call him down.
