      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is SB with J:diamond: J:heart:
      UTG raises to $0.07, 1 fold, BTN raises to $0.14, Hero raises to $0.50, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.43, BTN raises to $0.92, Hero raises to $2, 1 fold

      Final Pot: $2.36
      BTN shows 9c Ac
      Hero wins $2.21
      (Rake: $0.15)

      UTG was the guy raising lots of hands so I didn't put him on a big hand PF and I 4bet JJ vs 2 fishes which I think is not that bad of a play. But now when UTG calls and BU shoves I don't know if reshoving here is the best play anymore since UTG should have a really polverised range here and shouldn't fold anything I think. What do you think?

      Hello rap1dw1n3r,

      Don't like the 4bet at all here. What do you think what kind of worse hands continue even vs your 4bet? You didn't write anything about the sample size of UTG either. I would most likely just let him have the pot.

      Against just UTG it would be fine but you also have a BTN who min-raises which could easily represent a strong hand.

      Best Regards.
