      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Hand afspelen

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

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, J.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.40, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.95) 9, K, 9 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.91, Hero calls $0.91.

      Turn: ($2.77) T (2 players)
      MP2 bets $2.49, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.77.

      Villain is 29/11/2.7/56h

      I think I played this real badly.

      I'm calling preflop because I don't want to shove with JJ. A lot of the times it's a flip or I'm way behind against QQ+

      The reason I say this is because If I would have 3betted to $1.20, it's reasonable to say that villain would fold/shove because of his 38bb stack. If he would have shoved I'd have to pay $2.60 to win $7.60, odds good enough to call with JJ, but like I said I'm not feeling that comfortable shoving JJ.

      I decide to call his cbet on the flop because there's only one overcard and the board is paired, I can still get some value from TT/88/77, etc. BUT if I decide to call his big bet on the flop isn't it a bad play to fold the turn? Either way it feels like he's committed so if I decide to go with the fact he has a lower PP than I still should have called the turn.

      Still I couldn't stick to my plan because he showed so much agression and I thought I was beat.

      I think 2 plays are the most profitable here. Either 3bet/shovecall preflop or either preflop call and fold the flop. Correct? Thanks

      Hello rvvrecke,

      Preflop: Against that kind of stack I would just 3bet and get it in unless he is a real nitty opponent.

      As played
      Postflop: Yes, rather likely fold the flop against that kind of big bet which often times somewhat indicates to a strong hand unless you have some other reads. As you decided to Call preflop.

      Best regards.
