      Hero mucked J :diamond: J :heart: and lost (-$1.70 net)

      Summary Im my perspective. It could look like I'm overplaying my jacks here, but its an easy fold for me if he check\raised me instead of donking a weak amount. Villain seem be maybe on tilt the last few hands.
      On the flop : I put him on maybe a pair of eight or ten. [A8\T8\89\T9] or a flush draw.
      On the Turn : I think I should have folded or raised here, but his bet looked so week, I thought of calling him one more streak and re-evaluate the hand on the river, + I have some equity if he has something like 78d 67d etc.
      On the River : Well the board pairs and after all the weak bets he comes up strong going AI and I decided to fold. Maybe he had a flush, AK or even KT and was a value shove but he shows a bluff. :<

      This hand keeps me wondering if I played bad by not raising on the flop or turn for his week bets. But I thought the best way to get value if he is bluffing is to keep calling and let him barrel. But the River AI felt strong so I gave up :<

      Hello RazDirk,

      It's a 3bet pot, so therefore I wouldn't really raise the turn, cause then you are just turning your hand into bluff. :) But meanwhile you might be even ahead.

      Best Regards.
