      Most people bet Jx on the flop, and rarely do people actually raise a lone big club on the paired board in that spot. He might have checked a flushdraw on the flop, tho he'd probably bet that too half the time since he looks aggressive. That leaves us with boats and maybe something like KcKx if he decided to pot control it on that ugly flop, being a bit deep with both of his opponents.

      Truthfully i'm even tempted to fold the turn, i just don't see any benefit in calling in the dark in that spot knowing i can't call a river bet, and since i'm not ready to 3bet/call a 7-high flush on a paired board for 110bb more, i don't mind getting out of the way against a guy who likely doesn't make that 3x raise with a worse hand. Your line is probably a close second in my mind, and anything else without further reads looks pretty spewy to me.

      Hope it helps.
