      Initial raise from early position from a LAG that plays correctly but isn't either a poker stratege. He has been trying to make moves on me the last hands, starting to defend blinds and 3bet more often.
      I just call. I don't wanna outplay my TT and Villain has been too much active with me. If I 3bet, I'll have to shove/bluff since I don't really do it for value.


      Villain checks. This flop is really terrible for me and I estimate the last player would have bet anything that hit here but TPTK. I think I have a window and make a move. But Villain calls

      ...and donks half pot. I don't know what to think and fold. I put him on a hand pair + FD or better. I don't see him folding often his line. Our history went into account.

      I've 1,5 k hands with him but didn't have access to it when I played. I can post it anyway if someone feels like deep analyzing with me.

      Final Pot: $0.59.

      I think pf call is fine, but with JJ I would personally prefer 3-betting against LAG and playing for stacks- he would very likely get all-in pre-flop with TT and sometimes 4-bet bluffing (+ very often call with worse hands), that makes 3-bet/shove profitable.

      Postflop I would also prefer taking one stab and then checking it down. You often have the best hand, but since you can´t call any reasonable bet I think trying take pot down is fine. I think you can´t really do anything else than folding turn- you´re not ahead enough times to make there profitable call- he has there sometimes Asx hands and even if he decides to bluff with JJs/QQs then you´re still drawing to 1 out

      best regards,
