      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU = ($16.87)
      SB = ($9.80) (19/8 over 88 hands. 3.7% 3-bet)
      BB = ($10.60)
      UTG1 (Hero) = ($10.64)
      UTG2 = ($12.82)
      MP1 = ($11.46)
      MP2 = ($10.00)
      MP3 = ($10.00)
      CO = ($13.87)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with J :spade: , J :heart: .
      Hero raises to $0.40, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.40, 4 folds, SB raises to $1.65, BB folds, Hero calls $1.25, MP1 folds.

      Flop: ($3.8) 8 :heart: , K :heart: , 9 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.80, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.80.

      I'm pretty sure folding was the right call on the flop. My main question is pre-flop: Should I fold JJ here? (Also, I'm starting to see a theme in some of these hands. Hopefully I can learn to play them better by asking here)

      Howdy,

      Fold pre. He seems like 3betting pretty much his value range only + I'd say his squeezing range is even tighter, so we're up w/ strong range. We can't setmine properly, but calling his 3bet is not the best idea as pretty much every flop is bad for us and we will win it postflop really, really rarely. We'll just make more mistakes than do good.

      Good luck!
