      I like it, at first I was gonna say it's not good but I realized it actually is. Why I thought it's not good: Double high card means you are less likely to have that card in hand (true) so you get less folding equity (partially true). Then I realised how your opponent's range looks here: JT, T9s, 99, TT, JJ, Qxcc (when he floats flop). Qc is discounted on river so he has no Qx in his range. JT is air, T9s is weak, 99 doesn't always slowplay, TT and JJ are also weak. He has some flushdraws but some of the raise flop imo since they are with overcards and others will also raise because they somehow make combo draws that are strong enough.

      Knowing this, your opponent's range is quite capped, yours isn't. Knowing how weak his range is on average means you should vbet your JJ+ here imo and also can bluff often because of how many value hands you'd actually have.

      Very nice hand, actually thought me some more.. I still want to mention that flop could sometimes just be a check/fold but once you bet, barreling is the way to go. :f_thumbsup:
