  1. Fold. You're crushed. He isn't value shoving a smaller set, 2 pair, or AJ (or something just as dumb). This isn't $25/$50 where you need to call with stuff like this.

  2. Yeah, I think fold is good.

    While his action isn't incredibly convincing (since the jack hit the turn, it doesn't fit hands as well and might make two pair), then he leads into two players after the flush hits. It is a pretty strong line since he's leading into two players on a dangerous board after a flush draw came in.

    Plus, you've got a guy behind you who could easily be on a flush draw. I feel like he could be bluffing some percentage of a time (or value-betting two pair) but probably not enough to make a call profitable with a third player in the pot.
