      I don't get it.Would not it be better for him to ch/r or ch/c his set JJ or AJ??
      could he be that retarded to do this with AQ,KK?

      Hard to say but 15/13 guys usually aren't prone to messing around, and if he never puts you on a bluff it's actually a fine play for him to donk out there with AJs/JJ at nl5. The reason being if you never have air he can't expect you to c-bet anything but Ax hands, and most players will call down in your spot with Ax regardless, so he's not actually losing value against your good hands by leading, but he might get more value out of hands like KK-QQ that will be forced to call one bet instead of checking back.

      If there is any chance he's doing that with AK/AQ you have to call down because there are more of those hands than JJ/AJ, otherwise I don't really mind you folding by the turn.

      Hope it helps.
