    What was the timing on her river check. Did she think at all? Or was it an instacheck?

    If she didn't ponder anything before checking, then I think you can go for really thin value with a small bet, trying to get called by 99-JJ. Any hesitancy at all on her part, thinking about betting before checking, and I'm checking back, as I don't think I can get called by anything worse that is thinking about betting.

    She checked it back pretty quicly. If Ace didn't come on the river would it be a good spot if checked to again and say a 2 came on river to bet like $250 for value. Polarizing our hand and trying to get called by 77-JJ?

    Umm, check? Don't really see any argument for betting. The flush card got there. Ax for gutter and overs got there. Axs wheel combos hit 2 pair. There is a 4 liner out there. This would be the prime example of a good place to bluff someone off of mid pocket pairs. This would make a pretty terrible thin value bet.
