      BTN: $20 (100 bb)
      SB: $25 (125 bb)
      BB: $41.27 (206.4 bb)
      MP: $29.28 (146.4 bb)
      Hero (CO): $20 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J J
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, BB raises to $2, Hero calls $1.40

      Flop: ($4.10) A 7 K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($4.10) 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $2.60, Hero calls $2.60

      River: ($9.30) Q (2 players)
      BB bets $4.65, Hero folds

      $9.30 pot ($0.46 rake)
      Final Board: A 7 K 4 Q
      BB mucked and won $8.84 ($4.24 net)
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$4.60 net)

      Should i just fold on the turn? I felt like i had to call this. I don't like betting that flop because i don't want the pot to baloon out of control with 3rd pair considering he has a lot of Ax and Kx in his range i assume.

      Preflop: u should provide more stats. I think this is a very standard 4bet spot with JJ and calling here would mean that u think villain is tighter than average.

      Flop: what do u think villain's checking range is here? Would he cbet his air or check his air on this AKX flop? Does he have a range imbalance?

      Turn: based on the previous street, should we call here?

      I only had like 85 hands vs this guy. his 3et range was like 16.7 from BB so yeah 4bet would most likely be better.

      tbh i didn't think about his check range i just saw A and K and just was very conscious about keeping the pot small.after 85 hands I can't give an accurate description of his range.

      I thought he may have just been betting because i showed weakness and i called with the plan of trying to get to the showdown for cheap.
