      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:spade: , J:club:
      2 folds, UTG2 raises to $0,80, MP1 calls $0,80, 3 folds, BU calls $0,80, Hero...?

      V openraise on UTG2 ~15 and he never folded to a 3B (happend only 2times so far).
      What would be my motivation for a 3B? Because of his large range it would be a valuebet.
      Chances are high that UTG2 and MP1 don't fold, maybe even the BU because of the odds.
      And if a OC is on F the pot is big and i'm OOP.
      If i got QQ i would definitly 3B, but its a hard decision for me with JJ.

      Imo JJ is too strong to just flat oop and play 4 or maybe even 5-way pot.
      SO I´d prefer 3-betting and stacking off against UTG2 range, since JJ is ahead his opening range and he would call with worse hands+ he is middlestack.

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      JJ 61.88% 1,064,640,468 19,486,320
      15% 38.12% 652,149,468 19,486,320

      What would be my motivation for a 3B?
      - having the best hand and putting more money in with more equity
      - if anyone folds then taking down 2.75$, which isn´t also bad result
      - and if getting called then you would don´t always have to b/f flop+ they would likely flat with worse hands
