      You've got the initiative PreFlop, the board is a heavy-draw board with 2 overcards, so the only thing you should do is Cbet with max protection for you JJ (at least $0.2). The next lines could be decided based on the style of opponent (MP+1 in this situation). You also have position on him, so I think it's not quite hard to play this spot, though JJ is quite a "hard" PP to play with in this spot.

      Best regard

      My advice would be cbet/fold here. You will have a hard time getting to sd, if you decide to calldown him. If he calls you, you can get rid of your hand in the later streets.

      Hello brooksjohn,

      Add to full stack. Although as played doubt that there is any point to CB anyways, not many worse hands would Call you anyways, neither many worse hands will fold.

      But if you think you are even able to make Qx hands to fold here then there is another option to protect your hand from any kind of draws and maybe even Kx or make better hands like Qx to fold and of course for free showdown.

      Best Regards.
