      MP1 ($9.75)
      Hero (MP2) ($10)
      MP3 ($34.55)
      CO ($12.56)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, J
      UTG calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero bets $0.40, 3 folds, SB calls $0.35, 1 fold, UTG raises to $1.20, Hero calls $0.80, 1 fold

      River: ($6.90) 10 (2 players)
      UTG bets $1.10, Hero ???

      Total pot: $6.90 | Rake: $0.31

      I'm not happy with how I played it. Villain is unknown.
      But looking back, I'm not sure if I should've folded Preflop, or just call / folded or made my raise bigger, and then folded if I got resistance. Any thoughts?

      First I would make a note of this player that he limp raises from utg.
      You are basically set mining with JJ in this spot.Folding pre-flop is a mistake because if he has AA or KK you are getting the right implied odds to stack him. If he would have made a $2 c-bet then I would fold. Once he bets $1 just call and try to get to showdown as cheaply as possible.
      On the river I would call getting good odds and just to see his hand and get an idea about his utg limp/raise range.

      Hello DucksEatFish,

      Preflop: Limp/Raise = usually a trap. You can fold your hand here.

      As played
      Postflop: Kinda overplaying your overpair here, at the best we could consider calling the flop and reevaluating the turn. :) River yeah well, I doubt that we have much beat there. As I said I assume you were against a trap more often.

      Best Regards.
