      I could bet that K, too. He seems like very looes guy and could have some draws there or weaker pp's or Jx that he could even fold on 2nd barrel. On river it's standard check-back.

      ur hand is too strong to turn into a bluff on the Turn. And trying to bluff turn doesn't make sense cos u are never folding a Jack for 1 more bet (you would need 2 barrels).

      Check back and call most rivers. I think a Jack will be very reluctant to valuebet himself on the River with a turned overcard so you have a very easy bluff catch on blank Rivers. If flush completes I think you may have a fold, especially if river card also coordinates board.

      Flop: I could go either way. Vs someone who doesn't checkraise much I prefer betting for thin value.

      Flop: Valuebetting versus fish is fine.

      Turn: What range is the K hitting? The K does scare him off from calling with hands like 8x or 99 that we would want value from. Betting there isolates us against Jx+ and draws so it's a thin valuebet at best.

      However we can check back turn and call rivers on most blanks to let him bluff his missed draws. Most fish won't even bet a Jx so he will be very polarized.
