      Villain is standard ABCpoker multitabling tag. I think my biggest question in this hand is the river bet. I just bet out on the river.. I dunno, is this a clear value bet or am I turning my hand into a bluff? I really dunno what I'm expected to get called here. Especially when villain 3bet me in UTG+1 and clearly defined his hand to be the top of his range and JJ is behind most of it.

      BTW, I think I should've folded JJ pre. But I felt it was too nitty and he was kind of giving me less than 2 to 1odds for setmining value. I would've folded to a double barrell.

      i think by checking behind the turn he gave up the pot.
      i guess i would have bet the same on the river. and it can't be a bluff since if he had +QQ he would have bet the turn. u were ahead and u were value betting.
      nh

      + since u knew he was a nit i think u had a huge set value so calling preflop is ok.

      +and i would have folded to second barrell by him since we put him on QQ+

      nh and nice river bet.

      Easy river bet, he likely has there A high or smt, so I´d bet a little less, smt like 4-5$ to induce raise with worse hands and hope that he puts me on missed flushdraw and look me up light.
