      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from

      MP ($13.77)
      Hero (CO) ($10.45)
      Button ($9.94)
      SB ($14.20)
      BB ($6.51)
      UTG ($8.09)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:heart: , J:club:
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.30, 1 fold, SB raises to $1.10, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.30) 2:spade: , 5:club: , 6:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.10, Hero calls $1.10

      Turn: ($4.50) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.30, Hero ???

      Villain is a 19/18 reg over 130 hands, but with 3bet 10.5%.

      I always bugger up this situation. I don't see how I can fold JJ preflop, and 4betting just turns my hand into a bluff, so I call IP. Then....Aaaaaargh!. Help!

      Hello jbpatzer,

      One of the very important parts here is the opponents CBetting frequency, for example if he is rather such a guy who does CBet only flops and then give up on turn then we can likely even fold it on turn to make it easier. But if we have such an opponent who has like very high AF and cbetting there even 2stretes or 3 very often then we can likely Call the turn as well and then make our last decision on river. Although when we fold it right on turn it ain't nothing wrong. Rather even safer sometimes, time to time we might be even ahead but the question once again is if we have such a read that he is 2nd barreling there with pure air. Only reasonable hands we beat there are only few combos like 88-TT. Even not sure either he is raising them preflop.

      Best regards.

      He had AF 3.5 and flop and turn cbet 100%, although over a very small sample, and I can't say I looked at this during the hand. My instinct was to fold the turn, but then I'm just calling with JJ to set mine, which can't be right, so we ended up getting it in on a blank river. He had KK.
