      What is your plan with a re-raise here? Are you willing to call down, if UTG goes allin or 4bets to, let's say, £0.50-1.00? It is better to just call, while we are in position, and re-evaluate on flop.
      Also, if as played, then 3bet bigger, to £0.30. Otherwise, you are giving all the best odds for calling your 3bet down.

      If you were a pre-flop aggressor and villain now donks at you on flop, what does he do that with? The only hands that you most likely beat here, are 99-TT or A :diamond: K :diamond: , the rest in this calling range would be sets and overpairs that are larger than your JJ. If you call on flop, what is your plan on turn? I would give up this pot on flop.
      Another scenario, if you didn't re-raise on pre-flop and just called, then you could have called in position once and re-evaluate on turn.

      Hello art3h,

      Preflop: Don't like the sizing of the 3bet at all, rather make it 3x if you are doing it for value or either just Call and play postflop. Vs UTG range it might be safer even to just Call and play postflop without even knowing how he plays.

      As played
      Postflop: If you are 3betting for value then I don't really see how you can get away postflop. You have an overpair on the best board you could imagine hitting. If you want to consider folding in those spots then rather play it also passively preflop.

      Of course his donking is strong but you should be also asking why do I 3bet in first place, didn't you want to go broke? So why fold then we have an overpair.

      Best Regards.
