      I have started playing full stacked on some tables and i have some nice results so far. In this table i have pocket jacks and im heads up against another guy who is close to my stack. He isnt very tight from what i have noticed. The flop was looking good for me but when on the turn and river he started betting hard on me i was a bit afraid that he might have something like a 6 or something and i went on the passive end.
      Did i play this hand correctly or i could have gotten some more value by doing something different?

      I would raise a bit more on the flop, like 3$ to chase the straightdraws away and to define your hand.

      Rest of the Hand is fine imo, River turns us a fullhouse, so we don't have to worry about straights anymore and have a good call.
      Only hand worrying us is 77 but not that likely with the action here.
      he could have had a Set of 5's slowplaying there but we win against that one on the river.
      SB complete and then a call of your raise doesn't indicate a higher pair too, so I think the hand turned out fine.
