      If you think BB can call with Ax then you can push on river.

      Or else I would just call river because I can hardly imagine a worse hand calling there. His raise size is quite large compared to his stack size, indicating that he is willing to go broke. And you should notice that another jack would be either a split or having you beat.

      I would often raise J7 blinds vs blinds, sometimes just fold, but I´d never limp
      flop and turn are fine, but once he raises you on the river, I often think he has there Jx hand and your kicker is not the best, so I´d prefer just calling, rather than shoving
