      Until river, seemed fine. On river, I was losing only to QJs, that most likely could have been in his range, but any Jx that would give a split was too, so decided to call.

      Hello faronel,

      Could already just bet the flop and gain fold equity than Check/Call while can't be even sure how good our implied odds are. And otherwise on the river doubt that we are able to fold while he could as well just have the Jx.

      Best Regards.
