      I think i misses 3-bet on flop with top two pairs but result will be the same...

      Hi NoriDare,

      Preflop: Looks fine.

      Flop: The board is really wet so I don't really like our bet (pot is 7.5 BB). I'd bet closer to pot and once we get reraised we either go with the hand (3-bet) or fold.

      In this particular case, even though villain is unknown, I would lean towards a 3-bet because there are more combos of worse 2p than can do this (and a minraise is a sign of a fish). It would have been nice for the A and J to switch suites and then villains range could be even wider.
