      Hero shows A:club: J:club:
      (Pre 47%, Flop 28.1%, Turn 11.4%)

      Hero wins $2.06

      On these hands i always think about how to get his jacks in against a possible Aj.

      Best way could be to induce a raise from him, or just check it but we don't want his mediocre holding checking back in the first place paying nothing, mindonk could be obvious.

      Hi Dracsharp,

      Preflop: Is this a bluff 3-bet or value 3-bet?

      Flop: As played we should cbet these boards. He seems to like to call preflop and while he doesn't seem to fold to cbets we can represent a lot on these boards so we can get him to fold a lot of pairs.

      As played I'd either bet small like you did to squeeze some value from a random AQ (although I think he bets that on the turn) or TT. If he has a J we can expect him to raise and the money goes in.

      Alternatively, since there aren't many hands that can call a small bet anyway we can overbet shove there and JJ would never fold.
