Could I have played this another way?
Hey just wanting some advice.
Playing live 1/3 at my local casino. In big blind I wake up with JJ.
Utg calls, all fold to the button, who raises to $13, sb folds. I call, utg calls.
(Just a quick note on these two players, utg is solid, and button is at this stage getting a bit tilty. They both like to check or flat call flop bets, rarely leaving a hand without seeing the turn)
Ok so flop comes J 7 9 with 2 hearts. I bet $25, utg calls, button calls.
Turn comes a black 7. I lead again with $35, utg calls, button folds.
River is a 2, no flush possibilities. At this stage I find it hard to think utg has a good enough hand to call a river bet, but I still lead out for $40, and he min raises to $80. He has about another $120 behind, I have him covered with $200. I re-raise all in, and he thinks for ages, and then folds. He shows his fold as 7 9, and everyone at the table is like WTF WHY DID YOU FOLD, I then showed my J J and this guy is insta hero.
Now, is there any more money I could have gotten from this guy by for example min re-raising his raise? In my head im thinking my shove will pay me off more in the long grind, but id like a few other peoples opinions. Thanks for any input
