      Didn't really know what to do with this hand, I maybe could have made a light call on the river, given I know opponent has bluffed vs. me with air at times but given he folds to 3-bet 67(3) and overall he doesn't seem that aggressive I folded.

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: Villain seems on the tigther side so far so I don't like our 3-bet with JJ because it turns our hand into a bluff pre. Our raise size OOP is also on the small end, we should make it at least 10-12 BB.

      Postflop: That flop hits our perceived range perfectly so I would bet to take down the pot.

      What's the purpose of your turn bet? Thin value or take down the pot?

      Take down the pot really, I do think his line is a bit weird, he checks back the flop /flats my average turn bet and makes a pretty weak bet on the river I think he could just as well hold an underpair, but I'm thinking some weaker Ax could also play like this.
      I feel like I'm missing value in some situations, especially on the river and maybe folding too much sometimes. I don't think I necessarily could have called in this situation though with the board as it is. What do you think?

      He can have plenty of Ax that play like this so your line (after the flop is fine).

      If you want to take the pot down simply bet the flop where your perceived range is the strongest.
