      Flop he can be min-raising alot of hands, some Jx, some junk etc, i prefer flatting here

      Turn makes me suspicious when he c/min-raises again, however i think he can have alot of worse Jx, if so should i 3b here?

      Should i check back river given previous action if i expect him to c/raise here?

      Hi keoghh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Double min ck/raise followed by yet another ck/raise is NEVER a bluff.

      The only question is, can he play Jx like this?

      I rarely see this happening so for me the turn is a bet/fold (but larger).

      When do you see tripple ck/raise as bluff?

      Hey

      Im not really worried about him having bluffs here i feel, cos as you say i dont think he ever plays this way as a bluff.

      but do some fish ever play this way with worse Jx, which im not sure? i think its possible

      Well, we don't even have the best Jx and there are many better hands that can play like this. So you need quite a few worse ones to make your play profitable (imo).
