      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with J :heart: J :spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, 1 fold, SB raises to $2.50, 1 fold, Hero calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25) 9 :club: A :diamond: K :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($5.25) 8 :club: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.75, Hero ??

      I didn't want to 4b fold this hand since he has really tight 5b range. His 5b is premium : 88% (8) So more often I flip or behind here. So call is more reasonable here right ?

      Preflop: I usually 4b JJ here given starting positions but given your reads I think calling is fine.

      Flop: I think he has weak AX, AA or KX here when he checks the Flop. I would just give up now. This is such a great board for him to bluff at but he chose to check instead. i Don't see how he can ever show up with air here.
