      I would barrel turn again and give up if he gives me more action. If you however c/c turn I think you can often c/c river too

      As a rule when I am freeplaying from BB I am playing as a nit. I dont want to loose any more than the BB itself unless I hit very, very hard as people who are speculating and have chosen to play and probably have better cards...

      As played on that flop it is quite possible you are in front so you correctly bet out at it to find out (really an information bet). On being called you have to consider that JT is a very popular limpy hand and it has you completely dominated here, much less any Q.

      So I am giving up when called on the flop and surrendering on the turn playing check-fold. While it is still possible I am in front its simply not worth investing money into a nothing pot to find out.

      c/f turn, many tens beat you anyway.
