      How did you know his cards? Believe me, on this limit, he could have here a lot of hands ) J8, J9, QQ... So it's just fine imo... i would also bet a bit more on turn, in case you are ahead and I believe you will be ahead here a lot of the times.

      Call on the flop, means he has something, or draw. Reraise turn, probably helped him ( most cases i experienced reraise means villain got help, or called before just to reraise turn, because he's strong ).

      You can easily find out, how J help utg limper with around 40% flop seen.

      Im not folding AA, tho lost stack to 77 flopping sets last 2 times, no problem. This is not the same situation i think.

      I give some brain to the opponent. On a reraise ... i think J helped him. I thought its QT ( as it was P, stupid enough call for gutshot ), but could be KJ also.

      Usually reraise means you are beat, if you are not strong, and better to rethink.

      I might be wrong.

      well, your thought about re-raise seems quite realistic, but it doesn`t mean that you are beat. Though I don`t like having two pair in freeplay (the just beat me all the time), still, I don`t see how you can possibly fold here... actually, just lost almost the same hand on NL 100)

      xylere is right. he can have all that hands which were mentioned above +AK or KQ. maybe he still has a draw and tries to semi bluff. maybe he picked up a monster draw with ATs or something.
