      Hi.

      I would continue betting the River too.
      1) No busted flush draws on the Flop
      2) JX is not really in his range
      3) When the Jack pairs, he will be more inclined to not put you on JX, and call down with 8X hands.
      4) His range here is mostly some pair+draw type of hand, like 78 or 56. These hands have showdown value so they will not bluff the River when checked to

      Thanks.

      Hi thanks!

      i did not think too much about our perceived range. But i agree that we kind of look full of sh*t if we bet turn+river.

      should we just go for 2/3 or even 3/4? if he's bluff catching he will call any reasonable amount? I think if we pot river we look even more "bluffy"

      I think a regular 70% pot bet should suffice. Larger bets make more sense when more draws miss (like turn and flop brings 2 flush draws and river brings a blank)
