      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 244.6 BB
      SB: 170.7 BB
      BB: 100 BB
      UTG: 124.7 BB
      MP: 216.1 BB
      Hero (CO): 239.3 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has J:club: Q:diamond:

      fold, MP raises to 2 BB, Hero raises to 7 BB, fold, fold, fold, MP calls 5 BB

      Flop: ($1.55, 2 players) 4:heart: T:spade: 4:diamond:
      MP bets 3 BB, Hero raises to 11.9 BB, MP calls 8.9 BB

      Turn: ($3.93, 2 players) J:heart:
      MP checks, Hero bets 18.7 BB, MP calls 18.7 BB

      River: ($7.67, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      MP shows A:club: T:heart: (Two Pair, Tens and Fours) (Pre 59%, Flop 73%, Turn 11%)
      Hero shows J:club: Q:diamond: (Two Pair, Jacks and Fours) (Pre 41%, Flop 27%, Turn 89%)
      Hero wins 72.9 BB

      Is it bad to 3bet with JQo? he folds 75% to 3bet, so I usually do that. And on flop I think he donks only 30 to see where he is with his pair or T high. On flop I bet in case he has T or smaller pair. River is it ok check behind, considering my hand is so weak? Or one more small bet?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: This deep I don't like 3-betting a hand like ours even though he just min raised. The reason being is that villain will call a lot of hands and we simply can't play big pots with QJo.

      Postflop: As played I don't mind raising the flop as a semibluff but once called I'd give up unimproved.
