      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.104 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J:heart: , J:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.08, MP3 raises to $0.24, 2 folds, SB calls $0.23, BB folds, Hero calls $0.16.

      Flop: ($0.74) 8:club: , 7:club: , 4:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.55, MP3 raises to $1.74 (All-In), 2 folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $1.84

      I'm completely lost on this one. I'm sure that 4bet preflop isn't right. MP3 is kinda tight. Should i fold jacks to his 3bet?

      I called.I have an overpair on the flop. I decided to donk, to know where i stand. I think my fold is good on the flop, because i can't see that he do that with worse hands like 99, TT or even AK...

      But what play would be optimal with jacks here?

      Hello staktas,

      The problem here is that vs such a nitty range we most likely are behind and not a huge fan of even donking the flop. I would rather Check it and be happy if I see a free card which will just tell us that we are behind. If he is betting then most likely we are also behind since I don't expect him to bet anyways into multiway pot without a made hand. But as played nothing much to add, I don't think that you beat much.

      Best regards.

      We are getting ~15:1 so shouldn't be a huge problem. In 3bet pot we can make such calls.
