      No history on the villain. Here I thought villain likely has another PP below JJ. '3' or '2' seems very unlikely. I only beat 44, 55, 66 and lose to 88, 99, TT, JJ and I doubt he would take such a strong line with lower PP. I think I should've raised the flop. C/C might be too weak and inviting villain to bluff.

      Calling the flop is fine, if you raise it's for information and it's rarely (if ever) good poker.

      On the turn i don't mind calling again getting 3:1, there are still hands you beat that could play like that especially since he's unknown, he might even show you Ax if he's bad-aggressive. Also him going from potting out to betting 1/2 makes me think he's not so likely to fire out on the river again, there really is no real reason to cut down if he has something huge.

      Hope it helps.
