      Hi there gerv

      I raise in MP with JJ and get one call . The flop isn't very drawy , I would rather consider it dry. So I decided to cbet , and I get a call, which didn't suprise me at all ,as he was playing loose and callng every bet . On the turn , comes a T , which makes the possibilty of him having a full house evem smaller . I think if he had aces or kings or would of raised at some point , so I raise him all in . Was my line of play right here ?

      Your best bet is to check the Turn and see if he bets the River or not. You say there is a small chance of him having a Qx or Tx now but what else can he have? You block KJ/J9 for the straightdraws so equitywise you are not valuebetting the Turn if his Flop calling range consists of Qx, Tx, straightdraws (severely reduced) and maybe 99

      99 is counterfeited here so that will fold on your Turnbet resulting in you being way way behind against Tx or Qx

      Best regards,
