      PokerStars - $0.10 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $3.85
      SB: $5.00
      BB: $12.66
      UTG: $20.62
      MP: $9.37
      Hero (CO): $15.58

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has J:spade: J:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, fold, BB raises to $1.20, Hero calls $0.90

      Flop: ($2.45, 2 players) 5:heart: J:club: 2:club:
      BB bets $1.50, Hero ?

      PF: Maybe a bit stupid but I had one hand on this guy and he'd 3-bet it so I'm guessing its more likely he 3-bets a wide range here (especially with the large bet sizing) but I guess this is to be taken with a pinch of salt. I call planning to raise him off most of his range on the flop. Maybe a 4-bet / fold would work better since I can get him to maybe even fold QQ and AK and a lot his range which might have decent equity against me.

      F: Now I'm hoping he doesn't raise a wide range and has an overpair, should I raise him here or let him fire barrels with air and maybe re-raise him all in on the turn so he is more likely to commit?

      Edit: After some careful reflection, I think I should have just folded as it's always going to be tricky postflop and calling will probably be a leak long term.

      Hello Raknyo,

      Call and keep his weaker hands in the play and let him barrel. :) He might fold QQ or something similar if you raise + you don't need to protect most likely your hand.

      Best Regards.
