      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $47.25 (94.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $70.93 (141.9 bb)
      BTN: $73.91 (147.8 bb)
      SB: $75.82 (151.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J J
      MP folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BTN folds, SB raises to $5, BB folds, Hero calls $3.50

      Flop: ($10.50) 3 5 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $6.50, Hero calls $6.50

      Turn: ($23.50) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($23.50) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      SB: http://pbrd.co/13fkDXn

      Should I bet the turn here? He is either check/folding, or check/raising most of the time I think, and I turn my hand into a bluff, as I don't want to call a check/rAI here. So I didn't see too much value in betting, but lot of rivers are bad for us.

      Assuming this is true you have 2 options.

      1. check back.

      2. Underbet the pot. You protect your hand, get a small amount of value, price in some of the range that normally check/folds and make a check-raise slightly less attractive for villain. Line is unorthodox but I've had a lot of success with it in 3bet pots.
