      Def never folding. In fact im considering whether i can value bet. But j8 is great to cc river. He shouldnt have too many jx or monstersm i doubt he bets tx so we are mostly catching busted flush draws.

      I noticed u are being very results oriented in almost all your hands. U should try to ask yourself whether ur play was good vs his range and not just start doubting ur play when u lose.

      For example in this hand, the right play is very clearly cc and not cf esp given great pot odds. So i think u might want to work on this aspect of your game. Good luck.
