      I didn't want to fold JJ preflop IP against such 3-bet range, so I called. The flop was good for his CB and I decided for floating. After his check on the turn, I tried to take the pot. I checked back the river.

      Is my play fine? Is it better to bet the river, as played?

      His stats: 39/38/21,7/90/10,0/0,5/139 (VPIP/PFR/3b/CB/FAF/TAF/Hands)

      Hello Alleen86,

      It's not like taking the pot rather we are betting on turn for value often times and as well for free showdown to avoid him to bet on river again while we might have hard time Calling. And nope, I'd rather Check behind on river and take a look at his hand.

      Best regards.
