      I agree with your play on all streets. could we have raised larger on the River? That is the main question here. I'm a little afraid of him having AJ/KJ but still, there is only one jack left in the deck. I think he could easily have TX which is clearly never folding.

      So we can consider making a super huge raise to 5 or 6 and expect to get called almost always. If he ships over us, it would be really tough though. I'm even considering some huge overbet like to 9 or 10, and expecting him never to fold TX.

      Bad players are often not seeing the big picture and only look at their relative hand strength, though it seems pretty obvious that you are on a full house when you make such a play.
