      Hi,

      Flop: Flop bet is too small. He is rarely folding and we should go for max value.

      Turn: I prefer a check/raise here. He would bet a queen himself and we can extract maximum value. We have 2 Jacks so it's less likely he can call the Turn again with a 2nd pair type of hand. He may bluff with TX or spades on the Turn, then we can just check/raise and shove all rivers.

      Thanks.
