Interesting hand though and I feel like every street is actually really close.

I'm sympathetic to that argument. If I bet the turn, he isn't sure I have a Jack. If Chris bets the turn, maybe.

Depending on his sizing I probably just flat expecting to still get value on the turn and river whilst still keeping in some of his semi bluffs and allowing him to fire river with them.

Guys with my image don't check behind with those hands. More importantly guys with my image DO bet with those hands, and only those hands usually. It also eliminates the c/r by him which would be uncomfortable as many have pointed out. Very uncomfortable.
