      CO shows a straight, jack high(Td Jh).

      CO wins with a straight, jack high(Td Jh).

      This hand contains a mistake that am constantly making.
      When am OOP and clearly have best hand I very often check in hope that villain will raise.
      And the worst thing is that I dont even look their agression factor.
      This guys Aff is 0.9 which imo isnt good for desired action.
      Turn completed straight with JT and he re raised me so I kinda could smell where am I standing here.Anyway I hoped that he cought 2 pair, since I could easly see him having 97s or 87s.
      I called and hes 1/2 PSB on river was kinda strange so I decided to call ,later to see that it was thin value bet.

      I know my first mistake was checking the flop, but should I fold to hes re raise on turn or flop ?

      I hate hoping. Also Villain is betting and not raising. Furthermore you rather want to have his KJish hands call your flopbet, hit a K and get his stack rather than allowing him to lose less money as HE CAN CHECK BACK FLOP.

      That doesn't matter because you are not going to check/raise anyways on such a board. Every marginal hand will bet/fold, even A9 maybe.

      What are his stats? Well besides JT, he can have 98,97,87 , FD+over. Against his stack I most likely would either shove directly or just call

      River is a clear fold. he is checking back 2pairs here for sure
