Default Re: Trip J\'s weak kicker

I call, and here's my reasoning. If he had JT+ I'd expect him to raise preflop (although you do peg him as conservative do you think he would do this?). Then on the flop when he checks I reduce the likelihood of spades as a semibluff to pick up the pot would make sense with spades (I don't totally disregard them, but IMO the likelihood of spades is reduced). So when he pushes on the river, I have to think my jacks are good for the most part with my most likely loss being to J8-JT, jacks with good but certainly not strong kickers. Not totally sure what villian has, I just find it hard to believe he has me beaten with JT+ or spades so I call.

I do not like the flop check BTW.
