      Flop: I would check back this hand. In fact I prefer to check back most 2nd pair hands on this flop texture especially vs guys who like to bluff raise the flop a lot with a wide range of hands.

      Betting could be fine with AJ (2nd pair top kicker) since we could just bet/call a flop checkraise vs an aggro guy who doesn't raise KX hands for thin value. AJ also gets more value from worse (QJ JT J9).

      Turn: Definitely betting. I would bet/fold AA here, and I think we are beat really often here but we block a Jack from his range and we could have the best hand some small %T of the time.

      River: This is a really tough spot with JT. We only need to win 25% of the time. Any reads here would help.

      We lose to:
      AJ (4 combos)
      QJ (4 combos)
      KJ (3 combos)
      55 (3 combos)

      We beat:
      J9? (1-4 combos)
      J8? (1-2 combos)

      If he only has the range that I have stated above, then this would be a clear fold. But if some of my assumptions are off, like if he can have more worse JX hands then maybe you can find a call.
