      I probably call this bet. Realistically speaking there's very few Jacks in his range, Jx isn't likely to check/call both the flop and turn, and hands like JT are likely to bet the flop/turn themself.

      Also his river sizing is very large, a Jack would probably bet smaller for value. Think you're much more likely to see a hand like overcards/ missed flushdraw/ missed straight draw, plus hands like 89/79/etc often enough to call.

      you're probably right about the few jacks. however this guy has shown that he also can bet the river hard for value too...

      i doubt he's overplaying twopair, it's pretty polarized really.

      Yeah very polarised, you're right in that 2pair is likely to just give up, maybe call a small bet.

      As mentioned though there's so few Jacks in his range that don't take the betting lead (JJ, JT, etc) which leads me to feel there's enough air / missed draws in his range to make a call profitable.

      Hi,

      I don´t see having too many Jx hands that would c/c flop and turn, so I would also call his river bet.

      best regards,
