      I decided to not cbet this flop as I considered that he is hitting it with most of his range of mid stuff type hands. Though since I have nut non pair hand + gutshot this looks like the perfect hand for my bluffing range.

      Anyways I check flop he checks back, I think he has little of the board, most likely a hand like 55-99 or Tx. I think he is likely to bet his air hands + stronger hands.

      I decide to push him off those hands as I don't think he has the heart to make the call on the river and I still think I can have some slowplayed hands in my range like TT/JJ/AA/55

      While i agree jtx isnt the bst board for bluffing, we have two overs and a gutshot. U can always fire 2 streets on most turns too.

      River is very dependent on opponent but i think u rep jx better than he does. Then again ur oberbet line looks a bit bluffy. Doesnt make too much sense for u to play aa kk this way when the turn brought another jack. Its also harder for u to rep aj kj.
