      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J, K.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BU calls $0.75, SB folds, BB calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($2.35) 9, 5, 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($2.35) K (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, BU calls $1.50, BB folds.

      River: ($5.35) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, BU raises to $23.67(All-In), Hero calls $20.42.

      Final Pot: $52.69.

      I just want to know if it was either extremely stupid of me to call that huge bet on the river..

      or was it a good idea because he could do that with AK ...

      But because I only beat AK..thats the only hand i beat ... it was extremely stupid of me to do that?

      thank you in advanced for the advice

      Most probably a slowplayed set. Either that, or he just hit his JJ.

      AK is improbable because there's a big chance that he would have raised it preflop. + I don't think he's shoving there TPTK, a raise to $10 (in case he is sure he has the best hand) or just a call would be the line with AK.

      O, and he is a TAG... that means he must have something. Would this tag cold call with 78s?

      Anyway, bet/fold river is the best option. You will be against a better hand way to often there.

      Till river you played well.

      I think you see there most of the times 78, especially when he shoves that huge overbet
      I would fold there KJ, since I don´t think he would shove there worse hands than yours for value and he is not bluffing enough times
