Hands that make me smile... an LOL overbet for value

Bodog $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 7 players
The Hand History Converter

Hero (UTG): $51.75
UTG+1: $26.52
MP: $43.05
CO: $32.35
BTN: $52.50
SB: $85.29
BB: $62.80

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with As Ad
Hero raises to $1.50, 5 folds, BB calls $1

Flop: ($3.25) Ah Jd Js (2 players)
BB checks, Hero checks

Turn: ($3.25) 7h (2 players)
BB bets $2.50, Hero raises to $7.00, BB calls $4.50
If he has a Jx hand, he can call the raise.  At this point, based on his call, I believe he has trips.  He's a donkey and I want to value own him.

River: ($17.25) 4s (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $43.25 all in, BB calls $43.25
He checks to limit the pot size, going into pot control mode.  Given that he's a donkey (unfortunately, I don't have his stats readily available, but they're north of 50% VPIP), I think he's check / calling any and all river bets here.  I also don't think he's good enough to lay down trips, or even trips / no kicker.  After careful consideration, I settle on open shoving as the most effective means of getting all in as I don't believe he's ever check / raising the river without a A J / J 4 / J 7 hand, and he wants desperately to get to showdown.

Shipping 2.5x pot on the river is always fun!

Final Pot: $103.75
Hero shows As Ad
BB shows Jc 9d
Hero wins $100.75
(Rake: $3.00)
