      In this hand I didn't have any reads on my opponent, so I decided to play c/f after the contibet even though I don't think he was holding a J after the second came on the turn... However, I didn't have a made hand, so I didn't want to experiment, but I'd like to know if more aggressive play is profitable without any reads on this limit in similar situations... ...or was my play correct?

      You are getting 3.5:1 on a call on the river so you only have to be right ~22.5%(?) of the time for your call to be correct. It looks more like a missed FD than trips, this is a clear call imo.

      Best option here is to push the on the Turn.
      The second Jack makes it less likely that your opponent has the Jack. He could have called with a Flushdraw, Straightdraw or a pocket pair (55-99). So do not give him a Freecard.

      As played you have to call the River, since its very often a blank (only 99 have you beat, which also c/r the flop on such a board)
