The villain in this hand is a supernova that has been playing 5NL, and it was this fact that decided the way I played that hand.

This post is pretty much just a brag :P.

Nice! I actually like the turn check here, as I think he will likely bet with JJ/QQ which if we barrel he might get away from jacks. And if he's floating us with AK or a smaller pair, or anything else, it gives him a chance to execute the float. Normally I'm not an advocate of slow playing but I don't consider this turn check a true slow play... it's more of a deception line because if we barrel the turn our range looks so strong, and a good player can easily get away from a hand even as strong as JJ here.

Yea I've been getting so many folds and didn't want another one.
I knew this guy was a thinking player, so the turn check back to let him take a stab.
Then the river A and i lead out again, he won't be scared at all. He would think a pair over a T I would just be barreling and even if i had AK we just chop, so he shoves here in-case I have some weaker hand like AQ in my range sometime that he makes more money from because I'm in the big blind, 3-betting the cutoff.
Perfect result !
