      I'm not quiet sure about the bet on the turn. Hard to put SB on a range here, but probably I'm ahead with JJ. Any bigger raise I would have folded, though (if we'd had deeper stacks).

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Preflop: Depends a lot on the opponent, if he is rather tighter opponent, then you could as well just Call it here and play postflop against him but 3betting is definitely doable.
      Postflop: You can't fold the turn anyways for the given odds, whatever he has, in long run if you betting the turn yourself then not much you can do than go broke. And while being 3bet pot I might even sometimes just Check on turn since I don't really see many worse hands Call you anyways there unless we know the opponent better. More often he would just fold worse. Likely was just one of the cases where the shipped with such a hand, wont happen that often.

      Best regards.
