      Villain was a loose-ish regg playing 32/26/2.3 over 40 hands. The most resonable play here is probably to c-bet/fold flop, but I didn't here out of several reasons.

      First of all: If he just call, we would be oop in a big pot with a marginal hand without a clue about where we're at. If he raises it's simple though....

      Second of all: I did what I did, because I thought it would be a high propability that he would attack the pot on the turn, since our hand is underrepresented and he might do this with all XcXx-hands and random OCs. I'm not sure how much fold equity we are generating against JX (no spades), but maybe he find a call with hands like 88 or 99?

      Is my reasoning good, or is it to spewy/risky?

      I think you´re not folding there Jx if you´re going to c/rai, so I don´t really like that play so much, since if you get called you´re equity is terrible
      I think better is c/c turn and then decide on the river if you want to call another bet (turning your hand into bluff catcher)
      But also you can just c-bet this board and go from there. If villain is aggressive and likes to bluff then bet/shove imo is also reasonable line
