      Is a call to loose here? Villain 3bets 2.5%. I guess it 's standard to just get it in flop right?

      Hi,

      easy fold against 2,5% 3-bet. If he is 3-betting 25%, then you can call ip to then outplay him postflop.
      Raising and getting all-in is fine, if you don´t want to make difficult decisions on the turn, although I´d likely just call, since I don´t think he would get all-in really any worse hands (unless he has there AhKh-AhJh)

      board: 8hTh9s
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      Jd9d 38.20% 8,387 1,379
      JJ-AA, AhJh-AhKh 61.80% 13,994 1,379

      and even against overpairs your equity isn´t really that good:

      board: 8hTh9s
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      Jd9d 36.70% 7,039 1,181
      JJ-AA 63.30% 12,570 1,181

      Best regards,

      With what hands can I call? pocket pairs? I thought I could call vs such a tight range because when I hit, I definitely get paid. But J9s probably doesn't hit enough...

      If you were 150bb deep, then I think call may be fine, but here for 100bb you don´t really hit enough times your two pair or trips and often end up just with tp hand that can´t stand a lot of heat

      Calling with pp-s is better there, since if you hit set you know you can stack him most of the times. Also I´d call there AQ/AK, since that might be ahead his 3-bet range+ I have position
