      You can't bet fold, so wp.

      He has already played badly by sitting with a mid stack, then calling preflop, and again on the flop.

      If he got lucky with the J, or already had you beat, that doesn't change the fact that he has played badly to get there. For the odds you can't fold, and just have to take the beats from them sometimes.

      I think straight down the line is generally the best way against them. If he is some kind of blufftard, then check/call his turn bluff is ok, but you don't really want to give weaker hands a free card, you want their money while you are best.

      Against middlestack your line is fine.
      You could also go c/rai on the turn, since he would likely bet with worse hands and then he gets to good pot odds to fold. But if player is calling station, then b/c is fine line to take.
