1-3, overbet on turn

I open J J in MP, button and both blinds call.

J :s: 9 :s: 5 :s:

I bet 30 into 45, only button calls.

Turn 3

Pot is $105. Button (a rec player, but no other history) has 240 left and I cover. My default would be to bet 60 or 70 and continue getting value from two pairs, smaller sets and naked ace of spades.

In the moment, I decided to overbet 140, thinking that I’m never folding anyway if he has a flush and jams. (If anyone thinks I should bet 70 and fold if he jams 170 more, let me know.) And I didn’t think two pairs or smaller sets or a pair with the ace of spades would fold on the turn even if they suspect I have a flush.

    I'm not a huge fan of the over-bet here. Most of the time, with that sizing, I think you are going to force someone to make better decisions against you. You've got all two pairs drawing dead, and are a 4 to 1 favorite against the A :s:. If he has a flush, you are a 3 to 1 dog. You are also 70-30 favorite a to very stubborn straight draw with a spade in it.

    I prefer the $80 to $100 bet because I think it keeps all his A :s:, two pairs, and straight draws calling. If the villain shoves over the top, I'm just calling because you'll be getting 2.5 to 2-1 on your money, with enough live spazz factor that the call is profitable. If your opponent does have two pair, you're nicely set up for a river shove on a non-spade river.

    If your game has folks calling the over-bet with just the A :s:, I think it is fine. But that would just push out most rec players in my game.

    The place for the overbet is the flop, where he can call pretty wide with just a single high spade.

    i dont lie it only because u have been the agressor the whole way so u already repping an overpair here. if guys are really bad i like it if they calling with a naked spade but now a days rare to see guys do that without the A
