      i don't like how i played this river i think it's really bad to call now.

      should i have 3bet preflop? villain is unknown, (60/20 over 5 hands). most likely weaker given his stack size. i know since villain is weaker then it means i should 3bet JJ for value, but i didn't want him to shove with his stack. at the time i didn't really know what to do so i just called but i only need to be good something like 40% and i think i am with JJ vs a range of 99+ and AQ+.. so maybe i should have 3bet/called it off.

      on the flop i'm pretty sure i have the best hand but i didnt raise because he won't be continuing that much with worse hands so i just check/call.

      on the turn it isn't the greatest card but again i can't say im behind for sure. if i donk i don't know what worse hands call.. maybe donking is actually best on the turn while i think he can now call with his AhXx hands or whatever but he may not necessarily continue betting them himself... i didnt check/raise because its really overplaying.

      the river i should have check/folded since he is never bluffing so his range is now straights+

      Pf 3b is way better. Its always a 3b given 100bb but even more so vs 50bber.

      Without reads flop is a cr. He doesnt fold TX and he should stack off on flop woth kt and at a lot. Rmb when stack sizes are shallow u can stack off relatively lighter.
