      I'm confused by his line, he is either repping a stupid slowplay with the flopped nuts or turned sets or air mostly air I think. Then river really makes me cringe, is he still likely bluffing there?

      I don't think the river is that bad. I think it's probably encouraging a bluff if anything. I had a similar situation to this with KQ a few threads down.

      It's close but i reckon it's just about a call. Sure he'll turn over jacks sometimes but i think he's bluffing enough times to make it profitable.

      Looking again i think it's almost certainly a call. He's playing check call with so mnay hands after that river so i think his river bet is a monster/air situation meaning you can definitely call.

      Also in your favour is the fact that from the small sample size he looks to be pretty aggressive.

      I dont think he c/R with 3x so I think the river call is getting better and better but expect to see here random 2pair, sets, made straights etc.

      pot is small and you have tptk
      I´d call his river bet, since some times you see 7x, sometimes Jx, sometimes pure bluff
