      With only 26 hands, I obviously don't know much about his post-flop tendencies yet, but he seems to be calling down quite loose. I 3bet for value clearly here.

      On the turn, my small bet instead of shove is meant to keep his J in on both turn and river. However, I know that by betting so small, a player like him might spazz out, so I have to call a shove, right? I think I only need to be afraid of AJ here, he will often do this with Jx, though, to weird-bluff other Jx, or even with draws trying to represent the A.
