      UTG shows J:diamond: J:heart: (Three of a Kind, Jacks) (Pre 81%, Flop 9%, Turn 5%)
      UTG wins 206.24 BB

      I guess I should donk turn because Ax calls and fd calls, but if they dont have it they check behind. River fold? I rarely fold sets if there is no flush possible.

      Donk or check/raise. If UTG has a tight range and/or cbets a lot, or CO is agressive check/raise could be good. If I'm not sure I just donk (usually I donk if there is a fish in the pot). Check/call oop is the worst you can do, CO is a fish, so if he have some draw, you miss value, if he has TP or small ovp, we should stack it on the flop, before a scarecard comes, and he wouldn't bet again.

      Agree with DarkAwi here. Preferred line is donking. The reg is not cbetting too often with the fish in the hand. And we don't want to let it get checked around. Bet around 80% pot on the Flop and continue firing large for 3 streets.

      Hard to fold river. Maybe he occasionally overplays AJ.
