      Get in these spots every once in a while.

      With JJ I feel like its a bit weak to give it up pre-flop, but it leaves me in a hard position when I inevitably miss the flop. On this board I'm behind to QQ, KK, AA or Kx which are certainly possible, but then again he would probably C-bet this board with most of his raising range which I would image includes some hands that are behind to me.

      SB bets $0.53, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      What about the most important stat here? What about his 3bet? Seems like you can set-mine here with your JJ vs his raise size and I don't mind your play at all. Most likely were beaten on the flop.

      Best Regards.
