      Ok, so to put you in situation, we had this mega fish at our table and eveyrone ended up with huge stacks. I should of left but then I got aces when I was about to quit the table when the fish left and I got into a hand with the other deep stack.

      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

      UTG+1 ($2)
      MP1 ($15.77)
      MP2 ($8.24)
      CO ($5.41)
      Button ($2)
      SB ($9.23)
      Hero (BB) ($15.92)
      UTG ($2.79)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, A
      2 folds, MP1 bets $0.06, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.18, MP1 calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.37) 2, J, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, MP1 calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.17) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.17, MP1 calls $1.17

      River: ($3.51) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.51, MP1 raises to $14.02 (All-In), [color=#666666][i]Hero ?

      This is by far the hardest call ever. This seems so much like a bluff but I just can't call with only overpair :(

      What would you guys do?

      With no draws on the board you can bet each street a little less than potsize, no need to worry about protection.

      His play until the river makes me think AJ/KJ or maybe QQ, but his shove on river screams JJ which he has actually played quite well.

      I think you have to fold on river - even if there is a 50/50 chance he is bluffing, it is still unprofitable to call.

      don´t like your bet sizes postflop
      If you think he is going to call you down with worse hands then pot/pot/pot is fine. But since it is hard to call down with one pair hand potsize bets I like betting flop 0.3$, turn 1$ and river 3$
      I think you have to fold to shove. Players usually isn´t bluffing there and you´re really deep
