In this hand Hero is dealt JJ in BB, with 2 callers. I just got on the table, so I didn't have a good feel about either player that called my pre-flop raise.

CO: 65.03 BB (VPIP: 33.33, PFR: 16.67, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)
BTN: 70.77 BB (VPIP: 66.67, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)
SB: 67.27 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)
Hero (BB): 96.5 BB
UTG: 42.6 BB (VPIP: 66.67, PFR: 16.67, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)
MP: 59.2 BB (VPIP: 83.33, PFR: 33.33, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 6)

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:diamond: J:club:

fold, fold, CO calls 1 BB, BTN calls 1 BB, SB calls 0.5 BB, Hero raises to 4 BB, CO calls 3 BB, BTN calls 3 BB, fold

Flop: (13 BB, 3 players) 8:club: 3:diamond: 9:diamond:
Hero bets 6.17 BB, CO calls 6.17 BB, fold

I'm thinking that I'm strong here, perhaps up against AK, perhaps some broadway straight or flush draws. Perhaps my bet wasn't large enough to move CO off its draw.

Turn: (25.33 BB, 2 players) K:club:
Hero bets 13.33 BB, CO calls 13.33 BB

K is scare card because I think that CO has AK in its range. Interesting that he didn't raise though if they hit the K.

River: (52 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
Hero checks, CO bets 27 BB, fold

Q is way too scary to call this bet. Is this the right play here?

CO wins 49.4 BB

    I don't have very much to add except...

    Why would you think AK is in his range? In what game would AK limp in the CO?

    I think we can instantly remove that from his range entirely, so the top of his range that we would be worried about is KQ, KJ, KTs, QJ, QT... same goes for 88, 99, he would likely have raised these preflop.

    Excellent point. You are right about AK, the CO would've likely raised pre-flop with a hand like that.

    Do I put him on a made flush draw on the river?
