      This unnatural line shows strenght, but on NL4 I can't see how you can fold it. You get 3.3 to 1 to call, even 19/11 can shove air (on this limit) or some two pair what he plays in weird way.

      I tend to agree. While he is representing JJ exactly if he knows what he's doing, most people on nl4 don't. So it's not inconceivable for him to raise with JT or to have checked back Ax that somehow made two pairs, tho it's made slightly less likely by the fact that he seems tight overall. When in doubt i'm not folding a set getting 3:1, even tho i like making big folds.

      Hope it helps.
