      I didn't want to fold preflop such a good hand in position to such a small 3-bet, even though he would usually have a good hand, since he 3-bet my early position raise. I don't want to go broke preflop either. On the flop I decided to just call and keep his monsters in the hand. Don't think he will usually be on a flushdraw here, so I didn't raise his c-bet.

      Preflop I don't mind calling the 3bet here with JJ IP.

      As played preflop, I'd be more inclined to just put the money in right on the flop.

      On the turn shoving is good I think. We are only beat by QQ/AcKc and could get value from worse here.
