      This guy had been overly aggressive against my hands for a while now, so I hero called him like an idiot I am. Interested how others would read his hand with no history.

      I would probably check behind on turn and just give up on river if I don't improve. I wouldn't bet that small on turn if he's v.aggro though because I think he would raise quite a bit and then we are in a awkward spot. On the river I think I just fold.

      Agreed. It's too easy for him to have Jx and if he's an unknown we have no reason to think he can overbet shove busted spades there. Even if he could, there are still more combos of Jx out there that people play than combos of decent suited spades, provided he's not just playing any 2 suited cards.

      If he's overaggressive against you pick him off in spots where his line doesn't make sense for the nuts, here it does ;)


      Hope it helps.
