      I think betting the river is close, but i think its ok to bet for thin value here given previous action?

      Hey Keoghh,

      Preflop play is fine.

      When 2 players double-check to you your Jx is very often good. Betting for protection/value is my preferred option.

      I like your river value bet. I agree that it is thin, but you picked a good sizing which reflects that. Hand is well played imo.
