      It is somewhat of a bad river, because it makes sense that he could have AJ or some Jx type hand.

      I'll just jam the river myself, because you have to call it off anyway, also bet bigger on turn, 0.65-0.7 should be good.

      Reasons not to fold

      - Pot is $3 and you only have to call 1/3 of that
      - This is NL2, no reads on villain, so it's easy going broke with a high overpair

      Agreed. You can't fold so there is no reason to allow him to check behind crap hands while jamming hands that beat you, just force him to go broke with everything by shoving yourself.


      Hope it helps.
