      i didn't want to fold flop as he shuts down bluffs ott some % of the time but the bluffs are flips anyway. so fold f i guess

      Turn: (16.4 BB, 2 players) 2:heart:
      BB bets 11.6 BB, Hero calls 11.6 BB

      River: (39.6 BB, 2 players) 4:heart:
      BB bets 28.8 BB, Hero calls 28.8 BB
      i'm like "no one 3barrel bluffs this on nl25" by this point

      BB shows J:spade: Q:spade: (Full House, Jacks full of Twos) (Pre 67%, Flop 100%, Turn 98%)
      Hero mucks 4:spade: 2:spade: (Full House, Twos full of Jacks) (Pre 33%, Flop 0%, Turn 2%)

      I don't think you should fold flop - Paired flops tend to get bluffed at really often. And I think the Turn call is fine.

      River is close - I agree that it's more of a fold at NL25. At higher limits I would often call here cos this is a hand that's closer to the top of my range and only calling down with JX seems way too weak when people will often fire 3 streets with busted flush draws or some other random hand.

      But here if he's never bluffing then calling 2X would be spew right? With that said, you don't really have reads here. Calling can never be too bad but I think folding is probably the right play at a lower limit.
