      I think I would prefer to fold it preflop, or 3bet/fold.
      Its hard to know where you are at, when playing the J, plus there are some straigth possibílities, and think we should atleast fold river, doubt we are ahead oftent enough here.

      preflop is indeed pretty marginal basing only on hand strength. is he opening a lot of dominated hands from early position? do we have a huge edge on him postflop?

      as it happened, of course we are not folding flop or turn with our TPTK.
      however when he fires the river that strong we only hold a pure bluffcatcher, he is not betting AJ- this way.

      missed flushdraws are pretty much the only hands that we beat, anything else won't barrel that way/is something that beats us.
      that said, while the river makes it so that any Tx completes a straight and some of his utg flushdraws will also be something like K T/Q T i'd more inclined to just fold it. we are getting a bad price and there are just too many hands that beat us.
