      I actually like the line to protect and take the free showdown on the river. Against a big bet I am folding on the river. In this case I make the crying call and make a note.

      Best regards,

      When you get cold calling action holding AA and the board pairs a picture card, get scared.

      Conti bet on flop is fine.

      You got two callers. Almost certainly one of them has a J and is just hoping you hang yourself by continuing to bet into him. Its even possible youve been set mined by 33 for a flopped book. Very unlikely that both are calling chasing a diamond flush or holding concealed pairs. J10 is a very popular speculating hand.

      Thus I would check/fold turn.

      River is an easy check/fold. With a pair and a str on the table an overpair isnt very strong. QdKd / 7d8d could easily have called flop bet then turn bet as their outs increased.
