      Was it right to call it on turn? I was afraid of those jacks, but still. Seemed to me that he just made a bet cause I checked.

      Hi,


      Just bet/fold the turn. You can still get called by worse Kx and random gutshots/OESDs, which make for more combos than trips J. If you get raised you know he has Jx so you can fold safely, if he doesn't he probably has another Kx hand so you can bet/fold the river as well for value, or check/call depending on how loose he calls with draws and whether he can bluff with busted draws on the river.


      Hope it helps.
