      What you think about betting 13 on the turn in order to have little less than pot size on the river? i don't think he is going to fold many Qx and nothing stronger than that.

      I like your turn idea. Just get max value from fish, cooler him asap. In general you aren't justified with betting the same amount with all hands vs them because they have very clear tendencies, meaning you can size your bets on your own hand strength to just get value from enough of their range. In this case, it makes sense to stack Qx or better every time. If you don't, you left money on the table too often probably. Yes, vs smaller bet he can get curious with JJ but at the same time vs an overbet he can just say: 'WTF is this guy betting so big with a flush? No way, he'd want to get paid, he's bluffing, I can feel it!'
