      Hi,

      Sounds like a plan. He's halfstacking and probably isn't capable of folding Jx ever, if you think he can't fold a flushdraw either than there is nothing wrong with potting it and shoving the turn unless you think he's likely to float you with a ton of crap.

      In that case the line you took might be better since it gives him better odds to stick around with marginal stuff. However you should either c/f or shove the river yourself. Check/calling gives Jx the option of check behind and you still get stacked by flushes so you get the worst of both worlds.


      Hope it helps.
