      I'm sorry for the SH*T word, but If I have a read that there is 10% chance that he's trapping me, should I only call his river-raise?

      Is this 99,9% all-in situation? Do you have own experiences that 2nd-3rd nuts are very expensive in long run or are there still good reasons to go broke with this hand?

      10% is not enough to just call.
      Since BU raise river, he won´t to your shove and 10% you´re behind and 90% ahead, which makes shove profitable.
      If it is obvious second nuts, like K high flush, then I´m mostly behind, but here you´re only behind against JT. So I expect that you win a lot more than loose.
      I haven´face that many situations, since players usually fold, if I hold second nuts :)
