      Hi guys
      I am not sure what to do after a re-raise with JJ in position. I called first and did not hit on the flop. I haven't had loads of stats on the opponent but an indication of a loose passive player. Should I have folded directly after the re-raise pre-flop or should I have re-raised again against a loose passive player?

      I think that in general, before we 3bet we must figure out what to do if he continues and what is the reasoning for the 3bet.
      Of course, if you expect him to call with worse 3betting is fine, but against passive players I think flatting is a good option.
      As played, when he 4bets I think calling in position when given 1:4 odds is ok and reevaluating postflop.

      On the flop folding is fine.

      Do you have any questions here?
