      This is only my fourth hand on the table, so no reads on villain.

      Obviously, the min 3-bet is very fishy, so I thought it was worth a call....

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($1.99)
      BB ($3.29)
      UTG ($1.60)
      UTG+1 ($3.17)
      UTG+2 ($1.84)
      MP1 ($0.89)
      MP2 ($0.92)
      MP3 ($0.09)
      Hero ($2.02)
      BTN ($2.13)

      Dealt to Hero J:heart: J:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, SB raises to $0.14, fold, Hero calls $0.06

      FLOP ($0.30) 6:heart: Q:spade: T:heart:

      SB checks, Hero checks

      TURN ($0.30) 6:heart: Q:spade: T:heart: 2:diamond:

      SB checks, Hero checks

      RIVER ($0.30) 6:heart: Q:spade: T:heart: 2:diamond: 3:club:

      SB checks, Hero checks

      Hero shows J:heart: J:spade: (Pre 82%, Flop 68.0%, Turn 70.5%) SB shows 3:heart: 2:heart: (Pre 18%, Flop 32.0%, Turn 29.5%) SB wins $0.28

      Firstly, would you consider a 4-bet with JJ in 2NL without reads?

      Secondly, I can see now a turn bet would have been a good line? The 3-bet threw me out a bit though to be honest, and seriously surprised to see 32s... oh well, I'm learning each day... 3-betting light is a little too advanced for 2NL, and I think 32s is taking it a bit extreme... ;)

      Although this hand was annoying, it was still valuable for note taking on villain... :)

      Very interested in your thoughts here.

      Hello philhellmutt,

      You can likely bet the turn easily for value or something even on flop. :) Otherwise I'd definitely bet it on river, no point to be scared. But overall, the Call preflop is totally fine, without any reads I also like it more than 4betting.

      Best regards.
