      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J, Q.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, CO calls $0.40, BU raises to $0.90, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.40, CO calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($2.75) 6, 6, J (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO raises to $7.20, BU folds, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Hi, I will share my humble opinion with you :) .

      I would probably fold the hand pre-flop, because you are in too early position to play this. You can´t limp in either, cause you put yourself in a risk of being isolated from someone from late position.

      And I would definitely fold against 3bet, JQs ain´t that strong.

      As played, fold on flop is must, you have a weak kicker and can easily be facing even an overpair.

      That´s just my opinion, but wait for what evaluators will say :)

      Hello Filipstan,

      Preflop: I'd raise to 4xBB and if we get such a min-raise it's pretty close. For the reason that we are OOP, I am not really big fan of it, although it's doable.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much you can do, you went with the Call preflop for a big hand like at least 2pairs or even better but what you didn't hit then just fold it.

      Best regards.
