      By the river I was just praying that he also had AK or maybe AQ (AT somehow?). Is there anyway to avoid paying off TT, AA or KK OOP? Check/folding seems too weak and I don't think he'll bluff so check/calling seems bad too. Also with the stack sizes I either had 3 streets of small bets or 2 streets of large bets and felt JJ-KK would be more likely to call small bets on the flop and maybe turn as well, but should I just make a standard 2/3 bet on the flop?

      If KK-JJ want to peel one bet i don't think they mind the difference between 1/2 and 2/3. I'd probably try and get it in 2 streets in case he happens to show up with stuff like AQ there. His PFR of 9 looks kinda scary but he seems to be calling too much and the sample is still small, so it's likely that his range for calling a 3bet includes stuff like AQ that isn't folding ever, in which case that's enough combos of worse hands to make up for the times he shows you TT-AA when you shove the turn.

      Hope it helps.
