      Player10 posts small blind [$0.02 USD].
      Hero posts big blind [$0.05 USD].
      ** Dealing down cards **
      Dealt to Hero [ Js Jd ]
      Player3 raises [$0.15 USD] Could potentially be a worse hand opening.
      Player5 folds
      Player6 folds
      Player8 folds
      Player10 folds
      Hero raises [$0.40 USD] Protect my hand from worse and get value from lower draws.
      This bet looks majorly strong so I can assume a capable player like him wouldn't bluff at it.
      Player3 raises [$1.25 USD] At this point I should seize and desist, a 4-bet is incredibly strong QQ+.
      Hero raises [$4.77 USD]
      Player3 calls [$3.82 USD]
      ** Dealing Flop ** [ 3c, 9d, 6h ]
      ** Dealing Turn ** [ Qh ]

      Hi Raknyo,

      PReflop: Any particular reason as to why we 3-bet JJ vs a UTG open? It looks like you do it for value but this is way too light.

      Villain would require to 4-bet bluff a LOT or stack off TT or a lot of random hands for you to show a profit here. And we have 0 indication that villain can do that (and our history can't be too great with just 30 hands).

      And you are right, as soon as you get 4-bet you should say bye bye and be done with it which brings me to my next point: Turning JJ into a bluff here is not the greatest idea. We are better off calling preflop and playing postflop.
