      Hello, I guess I just hate folding JJ preflop and villain's 3bet is 4%. Am I always just giving up here or could I 4bet, call is out of the question.

      Hey, not enough only 128 hands, 3bet was 4% at this point. I think it's a fold, I don't think I'm ahead of villain's range, If I 4bet I just think I'm wasting money

      It`s pretty hard to estimate villain`s 3-bet %, sample size is too small.

      If he`s 3-betting 4% on average, he will 3-bet MP open-raise even tighter than that.

      If his range is something like this (3.02%): AA-JJ,AKo,AKs
      You are getting almost even money on a call pre-flop.

      To play this hand profitably though, you will need to make some moves on the flop. But as you are OOP and without initiative, folding pre-flop is the best option.

      Hello seanspurs87,

      Doubt that there is a lot to do, rather fold it whilst he is also 3betting MP which might be even stronger. We can't go broke here so only option would be calling, though then again we will have hard time postflop.

      Best Regards.
