      Dunno if i should have called check raise on the flop. I'm pretty sure he is 3betting JJ pre flop. I called because it was quite a small raise to re evaluate the turn. After he bets small again I figured he looked quite weak and could maybe have a weak jack or T9. Or he could have 88 or 55 but because of the small bet i call again hoping he checks the river. After the river pairs the 8 and he bets again I can't really put him on 88 so looking back to the flop he could have 55 or a drawing hand. I almost folded the river but was drawn more to call.

      This one depends on your read. If you have seen him flatting from BB and check-raise flop with sets, then you need to be careful, probably call flop and fold turn. Check-raise flop and bet-bet usually indicate great strength, regardless of the bet size (cause plrs in micros are pretty bad at this).

      If you have seen him ch-raise with draw then it's fine to call the raise, but on the turn he bets out. Again this depends on the read of whether this villain would do that with a draw. You also have to consider TJ there.

      I don't mind calling flop IP. But I would fold turn.

      that board doesn´t have really too many draws, so he is likely either doing that with bluff,9T, 67 or hands for value, basically AJ+
      I think calldown is reasonable if you don´t have any reads to the player. Against nit I´d b/f flop
