      MP: $16.09
      CO: $55.01
      BTN: $66.69
      Hero (SB): $46.75
      BB: $53.42
      UTG: $35.28
      UTG+1: $9.13

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with A :club: J :spade:
      3 folds, CO calls $0.25, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.50, BB calls $1.25, CO calls $1.25

      Flop: ($4.50) Q :diamond: J :club: 7 :spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($4.50) Q :club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, BB calls $3, CO folds

      River: ($10.50) 3 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $6.00, Hero calls $6

      BB is 15/9 with 2.9 AF on 333 hands, CO is 35/4 on 57 hands with 8.0AF.

      Is this line standard to get value out of weaker Jx?, I noted BB had quite a high river aggression freq but high fold% for river so I tried bluff induce. Better to just B/F it?

      i would cbet on flop around 3$. if i get called i would bet on turn and see what happend.
      As You played - i would fold on river. There are possibility that villain has Q or even flush. there are too litle hands that You beat.

      I would also cbet the flop. The reason for that is that CO is a fish and will call you with tons of worse hands.

      Once you check it, I like the bet on the turn, because it's really not credible at all :D So they're gonna call you pretty loosely. I'd make a small vbet on the river though. You're still getting called by worse J's and maybe even a smaller pp like TT or 99. I'd make it like $4.
      I don't expect BB to have a Q too often, becaue he'll often bet flop with it.

      If we do check, we should call, because he could easily vbet a J there and also there are a few busted draws. His calling range on the turn should be pretty wide. Sometimes you'll see a flush but you're getting a decent enough price for a call I believe.
