      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):
      $25.50
      MP3:
      $10.00
      CO:
      $12.16
      BU:
      $25.90
      SB:
      $9.60
      BB:
      $31.83


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $1.00, 2 folds, BU raises to $3.00, 2 folds, Hero calls $2.00.

      Flop: ($6.35) 7, 2, 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $4.18, Hero raises to $22.50(All-In), BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $10.53.


      Villain is a 13 12 reg with a 3bet of 6.5
      And I didn't know what the hell to do. push preflop? I usually push KK+ and sometimes AK+ QQ+ against regs. but i'm playing shorthanded (it's a full ring table actually). folding would be too weak anyway, so i call.

      and i can't fold on that flop. calling doesn't seem too nice as i'm OOP, so i raised.

      Don't call. Either fold or 4bet (2.5 the 3bet size)


      Flop as played, i like. =)

      you can 4-bet and get all-in pf, although I think calling pf is also fine to keep in his wide 3-bet range. c/rai on that flop is fine, although I´d likely would go smaller 3-bet to 10$ and then call shove
      This way he can shove his overcards and flushdraws which we dominate and also likely any pair that he is 3-betting pf
