      IF UTG is opening >15% here I squeeze him a lot in this spot and thus JJ will be part of my value range.

      If BB is a nit, backraising makes no sense at all. His squeeze size is insanely small so I call here, mostly with the intention of set mining (but sometimes we get to showdown and win).

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Preflop: Against the min-raise go for a 3bet-value raise. :) But against that line here set-mining most likely is better vs a nit.

      As played
      Postflop: If he is a loose-agro player then you might even be ahead here, don't you think so? :)

      Best Regards.
