      SB: $12.25 (122.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J A
      MP raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) 8 5 J (3 players)

      Turn: ($2.85) 4 (2 players)

      River: ($5.49) T (2 players)
      MP bets $6.05, Hero calls $6.05

      $17.59 pot ($0.87 rake)
      Final Board: 8 5 J 4 T
      MP showed K A and lost (-$8.62 net)
      Hero showed J A and won $16.72 ($8.10 net)

      Villain is 38/13 over 81 hands and quite aggressive (3.5 AF). thought about 3betting for value but since my AJs plays well multiway i decided to call.

      F: I believe i have the best hand very often but raising here won't make better hands fold so I call.

      T: His small bet made me think that he doesn't have an overpair here. Not too concerned about 67 because I don't think it is in his UTG rfi range (~12% but small sample)

      R: His shove didn't make sense to me. Q9 got there but it's such a weird line. He might have JT but it's unlikely and I block J. I have only a bluff catcher here but ~33% pot odds. Without further info is this a fold?

      Against a potentially fishy guy I like calling preflop.

      Both flop and turn look good.

      Without information I prefer folding the river. Usually people don't bet too much with hands like KJ/QJ in this spot and we only beat a bluff here, but I can hardly imagine him bluffing in this spot.
