      I would make turn re-raise to 8$ . Then I can shove any river. J makes it difficult. He should fold Jx against c/r. So probably I'd put him on flushdraw and call him down.

      You really give him so much credit for folding bad jacks there?

      It is player dependent.
      Assuming that NL20 regular is thinking player, then he would probably fold Jx there, since it shows so much strength. Doubt that you would do that with flushdraw or pure bluff. SO he might put you with AJ or overpair and I think that he won't call that often Jx here. But there has been a while when i was playing NL 25, so I also may be dead wrong :)

      First post here, so i might be completely wrong. But wouldn't he have reraised you on the flop if he had Jx, for the purpose of protection, and information. To him your bet would have looked like a standard continuation bet of a preflop aggressor. If you reraised him again then he prolly put you on a AJ or overpair and would have been a fold for him. If i held Jx i know i would have wanted more info about the range of my oponent.
