      Hi :)

      Villain had 23/21 (vpip/pfr) over 240 hands and an aggression factor of 2.
      His riverraise is extremely strong, but I just couldn't think of a hand he could have he would play this way, except slowplayed 44 or 22 or 66, maybe slowplayed Jx or something. My pot odds are 2:1, I was wondering if he would make this move with worse jacks... A fold seems ok, or is that too nitty?

      Sb is not a good position to call from. 3bet is a good option.

      As played on river, bet 5. I would fold to the raise. It just looks ultra strong when he makes it 5x ur bet size. I think he turned or rivered a boat and put u on trips. Thus he went for max value

      id bet river bigger, trying to rep missed diamonds

      his river line looks very much like 22, and i dont see him raising a worse J such big so fold imo
