      Hey,

      In this spot I went for check/raise because the PFA seemed kinda bad and I thought he wouldn't fold a Jack to a check/raise;

      How would u play it?

      I'd rather go for a donkbet or ch/call. With chRaise you show huge strength on this board, plus definitely shut BB out of the pot, who could call with a wider range like any pair, straightdraws or some other random crap.

      Hi Farma,

      Considering that our main target is BB (fishy guy) I prefer to call here to keep him in the pot.

      Since the board is dry enough, with one high card we can expect MP to actually cbet bluff a fair amount and thus donking isn't that great.

      By calling we keep BB in the pot a lot more often with hands that can't really call a ck/raise.

      Looks good.

      So ones we check/Call flop,

      Do you prefer a turnlead or a turncheck/raise? :)

      It really depends on the turn card and if we have the BB with us or not.

      If BB is with us I prefer to donk to make sure that money goes in (multiway there's a big chance that MP will shut down often).

      If we are HU with MP we can check again especially on dry cards where we can expect him to vbet the same range that vbet the flop (if he has a weak hand that can't cbet it's unlikely that he'll do anything vs a donk anyway).

      x/c. I'm not really a fan of having a leading range here. plan for the turn is probably to x/c again :/ the problem with x/r turn is that it's really hard for you to have a bluff here. something you can do is be super unbalanced in this spot vs regs, x/r as a bluff and x/c with your value hands. River is probably a x/c vs good regs and x/jam vs bad regs.
