      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , J:spade:
      SB posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), UTG2 raises to $0.06, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.22, 4 folds, Hero gets uncalled back ($0.16)



      I re-raised him from the cut-off because of the small raise, even though he was in the early position the low raise in my eyes was a tell, like probably had a weak Ax or Kx hand, so the raise was just in time to steal the pot in my opinion.

      Hello Rihard4a,

      3betting is fine if you want to make your hand to play easy, cause calling might put yourself into more trouble. Nice hand!

      What's your plan if you get 4bet?

      Best Regards.

      I would just leave it. If he does 4bet me, then he must have a high pocket pair QQ, KK, AA. And chances for me to get the trips with that Jack is nearly impossible.

      Good choice. :) We are most likely not going to do very good if we get 4bet.
