      So I obviously get lucky on the turn in this hand. My question is should I be four betting JJ in this spot? Villain stats were (19, 14, 4.5) 49 hands

      Hi DailyDollar,

      Welcome to the forum

      Your hand is quite standard. If you don´t want to call oop, you can always 4-bet and play for stacks. On the flop you´re b/c and on the turn easy shove with nuts. If MP were shoved pf, you would called and also you would get all-in on the flop, so it is nice that you hit your hand on the turn :)
