      Is my overpair JJ good enough to get the money in on this board? After calling the raise on the flop I've already committed myself. So is b/f on the flop an option or is that just to weak?

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Against not even a full stack if you planning to continue on flop then basically just 3bet and go broke. Like never Call there and give whatever great odds he might get with draw or sometimes maybe even overcards. -> As you went for value preflop, didn't you? :)

      Best regards.

      Ok, would bet/fold flop be an option, too? Or should I always bet/shove here?

      Nah, not really, not against his stack and while it's a 3bet pot.
