even if you knew this player since the day he started playing poker, you would have done the EXACT same thing. you have no idea what "situation" he is in without seeing his hand ? he could have ANYTHING from 2/7, low suited connectors to pocket ACES.
I mean, everyone loves to flop a HIGH set... and its hard to resist...but seeing that third jack next to 2 other clubs and then getting re-raised would DEFINITELY make me think twice, against anyone. LOVE DAMIAN
