      Once the 2nd jacks comes on the turn I think I’m most likely to have the best hand so I can afford to bet half pot instead of 3/4, so I can try to get 3 streets of value.

      Again - I'd bet more. Flop has many draws and your hand is far from invulnerable, so bet 0.20$ or just pot it.

      Yes, turn helps you, but that doesn't mean you don't want to get moneyz from draws again as I wouldn't be sure many players on NL2 will slow down with calling draws even tho board paired. So I wouldn't be afraid of betting more on a turn.

      When I see my opp being aggressive enough I usually give him chance to bluff his busted draws/weak hands (c/shove) as this board doesn't allow too many real and strong hand combos that are bravely call strong looking 3rd barrel.
      But if he is just a calling station and he will never bet out on his own - just valuetown him as he may have any pp/Tx/Jx and he won't even think about folding even on pretty solid river bet.

      Good luck!
