      TURN ($2.22) 5:heart: Q:heart: 9:diamond: 2:heart:
      Vs a normal stack I would have Bet/folded, but here a bet would commit me to the pot and isolate vs the part of his range that beats me, so I check.
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.92 (AI)
      I didn't think of this as a check to induce, but it probably does this alot of the time, as he can represent a flush very well, because he also has it often. Though I see many PP, 9x do this just to take it down, I don't think it happens often enough to justify a call.(32% 2,2:1 pot odds)

      I think the stack size is irrelevant and you should ALWAYS check JJ here on the Turn. you have no value in a bet and it~s too strong to turn into a bluff.

      I prefer c/f though, you having 2 Jacks block many possible straight draw combinations that he could have. you~ll need him to turn a ton of 9X into bluffs and also have many flop floats in order to justify a c/c
