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

      Known players:
      CO = ($16.47)
      BU = ($11.80)
      SB = ($10.90)
      BB (Hero) = ($10.00)
      UTG2 = ($15.95)
      MP1 = ($10.00)
      MP2 = ($11.12)
      MP3 = ($9.87) (40/15 over 20 hands)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J :diamond: , J :spade: .
      3 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.35, MP3 raises to $9.87, 2 folds, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.70.

      My two questions for this hand are: Should I have sized my 3-bet differently, and how should I have reacted to the shove? Should I be willing to stack off with Jacks when QQ+ is a big part of his range?

      Hello Salivanth,

      Usually your plan with 3bet is to get in and therefore I'd get it in and if I am not really sure what to do then rather don't Call at all. Otherwise I might do it even a bit bigger like $1,50 while being OOP.

      Just ask yourself, is this a value-raise or is "turned my hand into bluff". And right it seems that you turned your hand into bluff. :D I expect him to even shove with worse hands than just QQ+.

      Best regards.
