      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, J.
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.35, Hero calls $0.35, SB calls $0.30, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.15) 9, 5, 7 (3 players)

      CO bets $2.10, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.95.

      CO stats: (61 hands)
      21/19/30/9.5
      3.0/75/-/0

      SB stats: (38 hands)
      13/9/7/4.3
      1.0/0/50/20

      Preflop:
      I didn't want to 3bet him because CO folded 100% to 3-bets. Since I'm in position and both SB & BB were very tight I tried to get it HU with CO.

      Flop:
      I think he's betting a decent amount of his range here also with missed hands, however I don't see him call worse hands when I raise him.

      Turn:
      On one side it's a bad card because a lot of his range beats me know but on the other side it's the perfect card to barrel for him. Due to small samplesize I don't have stats/reads about that or about 3-barrel bluffing. So I was basically in doubt about call turn and fold to a riverbet or fold it here straight away. Because of the lack in stats I decided to make the weak fold. Correct or is this a 100% call?

      Hi,

      turn often hits his hand, so I think fold is fine. Personally I would 3-bet myself, since he needs to start defending at some point and JJ is good hand to 3-bet, since often you hit your overpair and can play for stacks postflop.

      If you just call I would personally raise flop to 2$. He would very likely b/c with TT, you protect against Q, K, A and finally he knows that he can´t c-bet his air there 100%, which means you can start taking pot downs more often postflop if you don´t have anything.

      best regards,

      Tnx for advice but do you feel comfortable to go broke with JJ overpair?
