      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of jacks (Jh Jd)
      CO shows (Ad Td)

      Hero wins with a pair of jacks (Jh Jd)

      Probably not enough time to think during the play. As I am reviewing it myself, is rare that the villian holds a Qx calling 2 barrels. So it had to be Tx. Is there still a point on betting river? Or he'll just fold since a Queen came?

      Opponent is loose and passive enough for us to bet again on the river in my opinion. We're only really scared of sets and overpairs, but there are enough Tx combos from his likely preflop range for us to bet three streets of value i think. If we bet and he raises we'd have to fold.

      Hello ragney,

      You can likely Bet the river also for value from Tx type of hands, he wont bet them himself.

      Best regards.
