      As played do you think the rivercall is OK? Do you agree that a better line would be to raise/push the turn?

      I think Flop and Turn calls are standard. I don't like raising the Turn - You just isolate yourself vs overpairs and he's definitely going to bet/fold worse hands on the Turn.

      In my opinion JJ is almost like a bluff catcher on the Turn already, as I expect this nit to check/call Turn with his TX hands a lot of the time.

      On the River this is really tough spot. We are pretty much at the bottom of our range on this particular card, and I don't see him bluffing at this bad card too often. I'll fold JJ here, maybe even QQ if I somehow had it, and call with AA/KK/TX If i did not 3bet with them.
