      ** Dealing down cards **
      Dealt to Hero [ Jd Js ]
      Player4 folds
      Player5 raises [$0.08 USD] Fish min-bets, clear sign of weakness.
      Player6 raises [$0.24 USD] I guess Player6 could be 3-betting light here.
      Hero raises [$0.60 USD] Do I keep pot small or protect with JJ, I guess it'd have a better chance heads-up. Player 6 looks a little too loose from his statistics.
      Player2 folds
      Player3 folds
      Player5 calls [$0.52 USD] Fish calls, great.
      Player6 raises [$0.72 USD] Player min 5-bets, don't think I can fold to this but is there still need to protect my hand?
      Hero calls [$0.36 USD] Think I should still be protecting my hand from Q, K and A until I see the flop.
      Player5 raises [$0.80 USD]
      Player6 raises [$0.88 USD]
      Hero raises [$4.04 USD] Everyone looks weaker than JJ so I'll just get it all-in.
      Player6 folds

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: Why does everyone look weaker than JJ?

      MP is most likely weak because he is on the shorter end and probably stacks off light however CO is still mainly unknown and his 5-bet looks pretty strong (considering we cold 4-bet).

      I feel that without information cold 4-bet and stack off here vs CO is very light.

      As played why do we just call that min 5-bet with MP still behind? I'd prefer a shove or fold there. Maximizing fold equity vs CO is key here in order to show long term profit (when he folds and you take the pot HU with MP you have a much bigger chance of winning the hand).
