      Would it be good idea to try to stab with a raise on the flop?

      I'd probably 3-bet JJ preflop out of position, CO's range for isolating the HJ limper is probably really wide and include a lot of hands with overcards to our JJ, we're not thrilled to see a flop out of position when we stand to be best.

      As played concerning a flop raise it's not really a good idea, that guy looks like a decent lag and you're likely good at lot when he c-bets that flop after isolating a limper, so turning JJ into a bluff-raise doesn't make much sense.

      If you're afraid he'll barrel the turn a lot then just call the turn again, he'll think you have Qx at that point and he probably won't try to take you off it by jamming the river, so you can check/fold the river with confidence.

      Hope it helps.
