    So i started value betting this tight passive hoping he had a draw and the more of my big bets he called the more i just felt he was gonna raise the river, is anyone ever jamming this river and getting it all in even though theres a couple of over pairs and sets he could be slow playing.

    Wow its good to hear i played that hand well, i guess i was slightly worried because i had a pretty big stack for 2nl and i was just picturing this type of player slow playing a monster, theres a couple of spots like this where ive been check raised on the turn and i had like $1.70 in the pot and i know im beat but it really is annoying to leave all that money in the pot but i guess thats something il have to get used to.

    Great hand, perfect execution.

    I would consider betting slightly smaller, like 26-27 on the flop, but that's a minor point. In short this is a bread and butter situation in these games. You want to get three streets of value with your overpairs in three-bet pots and you want to retain the initiative to do it. So that's great. Your river bet size is perfect and I don't think you should check-call to bluff catch, you could do that with a worse hand like KJ or AJ.

    THe only thing I would add is that I would fold should your opponent decide to shove over your river bet. It would take an extraodrinary read for me to believe him bluffing in that spot.

    Good work
    I'd actually consider betting more at the lowest levels. Players chase with any 2 and our tighter range will win us more over the long term with premiums like this. Saying that I think you played the hand perfectly.

    Well played.

    well played, you have a better betsizing here than in your AA hand as well.

    I see nothing wrong with your play to be honest. You'll get value from almost all Js and flush/straight draws. I think the river is a bet/fold. If he raises you here you are probably beat, but I think checking any street is leaving too much value on the table, even if he sometimes will show up with a lucky 2pair or a set.
