      Hi Dalmar,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Both flop and turn are fine. A turn bet would be too thin because a lot of his range beats us and the worse hands may not continue.

      Since he checked the river he usually doesn't have a strong hand but may still have some Jx in his range along with other pairs. I think that the stronger Jx would bet some amount of the time so we could possibly have a thin value bet. But it would be very thin so I don't think checking back is a huge mistake.
      If we bet I'd make it 1/2 pot.
