      Preflop is fine.

      Flop is fine, though bet sizing is on the small side, especially against a player who (over an only 14 hand read) is probably going to pay to draw. Id bet closer to pot size - 16-19 cents.

      On the min-raise of our flop bet, calling to re-evaluate on the turn is fine, though against a player showing 43-14, 3.3 AF even after only 14 hands... I'm already thinking of getting all-in with him on the flop. Villain is likely playing a lot of Jx hands and shipping them all.

      The turn isn't a massively scary card - if he was betting a draw it probably wasn't a gutshot, unless it was a gutshot + flush. I don't mind check-call in a call-down line.

      The river is the real scare card. Every other player has some inexplicable love for Jack Ten. I don't understand why, but some people will play this hand every single time they get it, and I am always leery of playing for stacks where JT has a monster.

      I would probably fold on the river too. I don't believe he has a flush, but he may have made some weird straight while drawing at a flush (8s9s) or have jacks-up.

      I still think our best line against this player as seen so far (despite the weak nature of a 14 hand read) would have been to get it in on the flop.

      I think both river shove or c/c are fine plays
      Don´t like c/f river as strong hand as yours when player can always shove his missed draws
