interesting spot... I could not slow down with hands like that either and often run in to better hands at the end...
can't wait for someone to make real evaluation of this one and how does it ends for you?

I could just copy and paste what I wrote in another thread lol.

Value, value, value!

Well played - if he shows up with a set, that's tough luck. We are ahead more often than not here.

I figured he has low chance of having QJ, I think I should have slowed somewhere, I'm worried about two pairs or sets.
He had

Hey praydk,

I think you played this hand fine and that would be my standard betting line against an unknown here. Although a lot of better made hands have you beat by the river that will be in villains calling range pre, you can still get calls from worse (since we don't know villain he could be defending Tx, will certainly get to river with JJ, could make some ridiculous herocalls with a pair putting you on a bluff with overs etc.).

I would personally 3-bet a tad bigger pre OOP, but that's it. NH.
