Only just read this! JT. He would have called a shove. HEe would have tanked, but he is a caller. He should have raised JT on the turn for value against hands that have just picked up a FD.
His turn call is really bad and shows he cant hand read. You have the nut flush here (which kind of makes the handreading part less easy to understand) but when you dont c-bet the flop) you are either giving up or checking back a hand with weak SD equity. When you lead the turn, you could have a made flush or have a FD. If he calls, then being as you didnt bet the flop you are far more likely to have a FD than a made flush. There is no point in calling with JT if you think your opponents range is almost exclusively made flushes, so if he thinks JT is ahead of your range then he should raise it. If you shove then he should probably fold. On that board JT is a clear raise for value on the turn. Now the river play makes no sense. You lead the river on a board with a possible made flush. He has trips. You lead, your range is missed FDs, which dont call a raise, made flushes which call a raise and trip jacks, which all of them are better than JT (plus the rivber jack makes it less likely that you hold a jack) So again he cant hand read because the river isnt a spot he can raise for value, its a call.
So the fact he cant handread means he wouldnt have thought much further than "I have trips Im not folding" So you should have shoved.
