      I make standard re-raise preflop. Ideally looking to take down whats already on the table.

      The call makes me think A-9+ 55+

      Villain checks the flop so I bet for value and to avoid being outdrawn on the turn.

      The call on the flop should have told me its an overpair? When villain bet out on the turn I knew I was behind but was really hoping for a bluff.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, J.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.20, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.27) 7, 6, 9 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $1.20, MP1 calls $1.20.

      Turn: ($3.67) 8 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $3.27, Hero calls $3.27.

      River: ($10.21) 4 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $10.21.
      Results follow:

      MP1 shows a pair of aces(A A).
      Hero shows a pair of jacks(J J).

      MP1 wins with a pair of aces(A A).

      Hello Phildini,

      Preflop: Why do you think it's a standard 3bet? You didn't even mention how the opponent does play. We can't be sure that we even are doing the 3bet for value. :) I might even prefer just Calling and playing postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Wouldn't even bet that much on flop, ~$0,90 should be enough and as played what hands do you beat on turn? Obviously his shove doesn't make sense but can we hero-call here while we even don't know the opponent. For me it might be even rather a fold without knowing that he is capable of doing such a huge bluff.

      Best regards.
