      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      MP3 ($42.57)
      CO ($28.17)
      Button ($15.11)
      Hero (SB) ($10)
      BB ($57.38)
      UTG ($40.32)
      UTG+1 ($32.35)
      MP1 ($51.76)
      MP2 ($3.95)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, J
      4 folds, MP3 bets $0.75, 1 fold, Button calls $0.75, Hero raises to $3.25, 1 fold, MP3 calls $2.50, Button calls $2.50

      Flop: ($10) 9, 3, 9 (3 players)
      Hero bets $6.75 (All-In), MP3 calls $6.75, 1 fold

      Turn: ($23.50) 6 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($23.50) 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $23.50 | Rake: $1.17

      I think I played it about right about the line I used however I am more sceptical about the bet amount. By betting pot size and getting both initial raiser and caller to call. my stack size is about 2/3 of pot size giving good odds for a strong draw to call me. Shoould I've bet slighlty smaller preflop to leave me enough for pot size bet?


      should it be a line to adopt with raiser + limper(s) and high pairs (I give JJ a high pair status because of unknown initial raiser in MP3)

      Hey thazar,

      I would play the same way against unknown. If you had only one caller, then you would have a potsized stack on the flop left, and when they both call, don't worry too much because that way you're getting value preflop.

      Besides, when you shove 2/3 on the flop and someone calls with a draw that's a good thing, because this means you're getting extra value from draws.
