      What about an overbet or shove on the river? Will he fold Jx to an overbet? A shove could make him think I was bluffing just because there are 3 8s out there.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      First of all against station we definitely have to Bet the flop & turn bigger. No way I'd make that smallish.

      But as played just ship it. :> 8x ain't that likely and while he has like a lot of Jx hands in his 67 VPIP range. Which most likely will Call, unless you expect him being rather nitty with going to showdown.

      It's often the case that those stations ain't able to fold Jx.

      Best regards.
