      Any advice here is good. I'm pretty sure I played this badly and should be raising the turn or getting it in on the river. Thoughts?

      Turn looks really safe and he bets strongly so just calling here is also an option.

      River shove is a must I think. Leading out three times looks very strong but I would raise-shove here and make notes if he played that way with 77+ or maybe fullhouse...

      (he got JT right?)

      44, and donked out with the FH. really strange line. I should really raise the turn I'm aware of that, but when I call the turn, I'm SUPER surprised to see him also bet the river, thats why i decide just to call.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      That's pretty sick spot, although I guess shipping the river is an option as well, sometimes he might even slowplay some higher overpairs there and as well has a lot of worse Jx type of hands in his range.

      And about the raise on turn it ain't a must, you can easily just Call it and try shipping on river.

      Best regards.
