      Pre: I hate calling oop. But I also hate folding JJ, and hate 3betting them which kind of turns them into a bluff vs unknown zoom guy's opening range. So I'm not sure what to do!

      Flop: playing check/call, I guess. I considered donking out to protect from overcards, but donk/fold would be a bit of a waste and I could get bluffed off the best hand. I don't think he has many draws in his range so I am not too worried about giving a free card.

      Turn: I don't think his raise makes sense here. Anything that he is raising for value, would have cbet the flop for protection. I think that he thinks I am stabbing or picked up a draw, and he is most likely rebluffing me. So I decide to call him down.
