      Well played. I don't expect to see there anything like fd, KJ, QJ.

      While it may seem nitty, I'd fold preflop. You are getting called very often here and have to play a 3bet pot oop with a hand that's likely to be dominated. Even when you hit (as in your case), you can't know for sure where you stand and have to play very carefully.

      Yeah I'd usually fold that pre-flop aswell but the minraise was odd enough that I could see him having a small pair or even thin air, that's why I re-raised him there.

      Raising that is ok, because min-raise can be a weak stealing, too. You just got to have some reads on your opponent to evaluate whether he has a hand or not.

      In these levels, sometimes calling that flop is ok, because some fish go all-in w JT, JQ etc.

      Hello elda420,

      Depends a lot on the opponent here of course. You may easily even see FDs there which are shoving as FD+overcards or whatsoever. Plus you can never discount Jx hands.

      Right now he is representing a very narrow range, he can't have many 2pairs, mainly sets. Though may still have some draws + even QJ/KJ type of hands. Mainly would base how I see the guy and then act accordingly, if he is rather loose then even be willing to call it off. If you assume he is rather tighter and passive then folding ain't a mistake.

      Best Regards.
