      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:heart: , J:diamond:
      6 folds, BU raises to $0.75, SB folds, Hero raises to $2.25, BU raises to $4.75, Hero raises to $13.00, BU calls $8.25.

      Hero bets $16.29 (All-In), BU calls $13.05 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Turn: ($52.20) 4:spade:
      River: ($52.20) 2:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $52.20

      Critical villain stats -

      BU open range 38%
      on 3bet raise 50% (4/8)

      Thoughts? His 4bet had me wondering what to do, but based on the two statistics above I chose to go broke preflop. Obviously after being cold-called to 5bet I am going all in on any overpair flop or better.

      Not going to fold there JJ against BU, who might easily 4-bet bluff that spot.
      Would personally prefer 5-bet shoving, but if you think that 5-bet either get called by worse hands or if it might fold out his QQ/AK I'm fine 5-betting to 8-10$ and then shoving on any flop.
