      Hi!

      Villain is 23/3/3.8 after 30 hands.

      Now that jack on turn and his ch got me thinking. Cuz Jx is deffinitely in his range, so I ch/b for pot control. Now on river I just chickened out, there is barely a few opponents that are pulling the ch/r with the nuts but I took the free SD which is not bad but I think I am very weak when it comes to thin VB.

      Bet more on the flop. 2,50-2,75.
      Barrel the turn, when the 2nd J comes, its less likely that he has it and for him its less likely that you have it.
      If you barrel the turn it will be easy shove on the river.

      I don't know where this theory comes from.
      ofc from a probability point of view if a J comes everybody less likely has it but what if he has one?

      C behind on the turn makes sense to me for pot control.
      After his river Check you can probably make a smallish Vbet on the river like 3$

      If he has J you will be valuetowning yourself, but like i said its less likely that he has one (from a probability point of view, like you said)
      Cmon, its a fish with 68bb stack. He will continue calling with 9x, oesd QT, T7, got-shots KQ, 78 and other random crap. If he starts raising you, then you can push on the brakes, otherwise - just valuebet-bet-bet.
      I might be wrong :)

      you played flop and turn fine
      once you he checks again to you , it is easy valuebet on the river
      He is going to bet out his Jx most of the times, but would c/c with Tx and weaker hands
