      Total pot: $45.39 | Rake: $2

      Villain was unknown.
      When he calls the flop I still give him a wide range on this board since he won't give me to much credit on a dry T-high board. So when the J comes I see the chance to fold out his Tx hands, his lower pocketpairs and maybe his overcard-gutshots like AQ,AJ that he peeled for float. The minraise is probably strong but the outs are too fine so I call.

      On the River I still don't think that his hand range is strong enough to NOT checkbehind so I don't donk and choose to ch/r.

      Agree with my line so far or any other opinion?

      Hey Jazzy29,

      Double barreling is fine, especially when you turn an open ender.

      You clearly have implied odds to call on turn, and I'd expect villain to be pretty strong, 2pair/set.

      River check/raise is great, villain is still very strong and will be betting with a very high frequency vs a check.
