      Hi Daisuke,

      I am assuming you mean AA = Jx?

      If that's what you mean I would say AA = AJ not any Jx because either villain could have JQ/JK that they play this way.

      However, considering the flop is dry I don't mind just calling here.

      On the turn where some draws come in we can start raising for thin value (and since BB hasn't raised twice he usually doesn't have a strong hand).

      So on the turn I'd make it $3 or so.
