      im not a huge fan of my call OOP but i wasnted to see a flop and play post flop with him.

      as an over pair i donk to see if he has anything. when he calls i am ready to give up the hand

      i def made a note after this one..

      is this play okay? should i just fold pre? i feel like JJ is too strong to fold pre, should at least see a flop?

      Hello joeldowey123,

      Preflop: Often times on those limits the 3bet is very strong and therefore for Calling the 3bet you rather have to know the opponent. And while even being OOP I would even advice to rather fold the hand unless we know the opponent. But of course Calling is doable.

      As played
      Postflop: If you even Called it preflop then why don't you give him a chance of CBetting while he was PFA with hands what are just overcard type of hands. Rather let him CBet and Check/Call and reevaluate it on further streets. And of course the donk sizing ain't the best either, should be a bit bigger ~$0,40.

      Best regards.
