      i kinda took a weird line here, i rarely call KJ oop, especially from SB here, but BB was a HUGE nit who folds just about everyhitng and villain was a fish (not much stats, but very bad) so i think i can play it profitably vs him, even oop

      thought about just donking flop, but i decided to c/c, c/c and since his bet on the river doesnt really look like a flush i went for some thin value vs underpairs/worse Jx here.... hence i just c/raised small

      or should i just jam the river? since with his like only hand that beats me is nothing.... well, ok, AJ.. and im pretty sure he wouldnt fold a JQ/JT here almost ever
      too thin to c/jam?

      You shouldnt post the results.
      Against that sizing I might even raise the turn for thin value against worse Jx and a bunch of draws that are out there.

      Also make a note how he played his hand.

      Preflop: Calling is fine, you could also 3bet in the SB just to ensure that you don't get squeezed or get into a 3way situation which is super terrible for your hand.

      River: Jamming is too thin. I think when he bets so small, he rarely has a FH or flush. Question is whether we can make a thin raise here. AJ is probably a raise, KJ is very close, and I would call worse JX.

      I think you should make it slightly larger though, like 3.50 or 4, to make it look bluffier. Such a small size seems like value to me.
