Too aggressive of a line against an unknown who just bought in? She's down to $9; too much to put in, too little for her to fold?

This is a very bad card to double barrel. It's changed nothing in terms of how villain will value his/her hand - in other words if she's calling the flop, she's calling that turn. Especially shortstacked. Just check/fold it down and hope to spike an A/K or a free showdown.

This is a very standard line against an unknown - nowhere near 'too aggressive' imo.

Flop bet is standard, but after making it and seeing her stack after calling, I wondered if I should have planned it better so she's not so committed.

The other option would have been preflop, to just call behind but then that's not my default play.

I'm chk/folding this. I dunno, PL puts me on tilt tbh. Villains play it like it LHE, they turn up at the river with all sorts of crap.

Ya, often PL is okay, but last night 2 tables of it both played like 0.01/0.02 or something. Limpy and cally, I raised JJ UTG and got 4 callers. At one point I was 14/8 but the table average was 47/0.8. Tough to win at when you're not hitting hands but they won't fold.
