      this is a clear preflop fold vs a 5x open from utg, villain is representing a very strong range.

      as played, the above answers postflop -> he is heavily weighted towards overpairs which just bet huge for value. you beat most overpairs so i don't think you should fold. :f_biggrin:
      JJ can be a turn fold, or even a flop fold against such a sizing.


      as for the hand that he showed, that's interesting.
      i'd definitely try to keep an eye to see how he plays his value hands, you might have a goldmine tell there.
