      Had a weird feeling that I was already behind on the flop, only I coudn´t believe that he limp/calls in KJ or JJ. His aggressor factor is quite high, so he would raised pre-flop with JJ. Would you believe on that place your instincts or get stacked? And I could already thought that maybe he was holding QT and now checked with his straight when I bet out the turn:)

      It is very hard to check behind on the turn and then call only the river bet unimproved. Not sure it is even +ev, but you should trust your instincts.
      And full house is being played imo different than trips with good kicker. Getting stacked is the most reasonable thing to do here:P
