      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, J.
      UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.16, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.34) K, 5, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.24, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.34.

      JJ really seems to be a bit of a problematic hand for me. Villain had been rather loose (but not very extremely loose, like playing trash like 95o), so would raising pre-flop here have been a better option? JJ (and TT, for that matter) have been giving me quite some trouble post-flop, so perhaps I should play them differently pre-flop?

      Hello TinoLaan,

      Preflop: Well, depends really how often does he open? Did he also open with 95o or just limp? Against wider raises I would consider 3betting, but of course Calling is also fine.
      Postflop: Although I would still Check/Call it once and reevaluate it on turn. His CBetting range could easily even miss that kind of board, plus his CB size ain't that strong either.

      Best Regards.
