      MP1 wins with three of a kind, jacks(7h Jh).

      Preflop: This was the first time i we ever seen the villain and he played maybe 10 hands before this hand so i didn t know nothing about his game just wanted to iso pre and take it down with a c-bet.

      Flop: I make a standard c-bet and he calls so i put him on a pair and plan to give up...

      Turn: I hit an ace witch is great but decide to check back cause i don t think he d call me with an underpair... Also if he has a jack i keep the pot small...

      River: He fires a potsized bet into me, and i have no idea what to do... I feel like my hand is too underrepped to fold, but there is also no draw that he can call the flop and bluff the river, also i don t think he d turn a pair into a bluff... If i had any stats or reads on him it would be an easier decision but vs a complete unknown should i just fold here?

      I'd b/f turn and then take my free river. If I'd check back turn I'd call river. I have no idea if he would bet for value worse Ax hands, but if I check turn I also induce river so I think call is better than fold.
