      Villain was 21/18 with a 3bet of 11 and AF of 3 over 400 hands.
      The flop was an easy call and I thnik the 3bet was okay, but was I right to call the 4bet with JJ in position?

      Hello trickybob,

      Huh. That's why I'd even prefer just Calling vs UTG range often times rather than go even for a 4bet. If we face a 4bet it's often the case that we are against a very strong range. At the best we might get a coinflip vs AK or something similar.

      Therefore as played I'd rather lay it down even to the 4bet than Call. Since for set value we very likely can't even Call. But now again I'd ask the easiest question, what's your plan with your 3bet? What do you want to achieve?

      Best regards.
