      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 298.6 BB
      Hero (SB): 132.12 BB
      BB: 97.44 BB
      UTG: 125.24 BB
      MP: 112.6 BB
      CO: 100 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has J:spade: J:club:

      fold, MP raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, Hero calls 2.6 BB, BB raises to 12 BB, MP calls 9 BB, Hero raises to 132.12 BB and is all-in, fold, fold

      Hero wins 36 BB

      BB 23 hands VpiP 30
      MP 45 hands, VPiP 24

      Is my line ok? I usually dont 3bet JJ. When MP calls I dont think he has so often QQ+, and sqeeze is often bluff.

      you are in the SB so you can always have the option of 3betting since flatting in SB is usually not that great.

      but i think a call is fine. i usually call JJ in BB vs MP opens. but things can change if you have aggro image or if the MP player opens wider than usual (then you should 3bet bluff him a lot more and also 3bet JJ for value).

      as played you got squeezed and i think your hand is strong enough to play for stacks. add the fact that MP is probaly not too strong (given he should 4bet AK and QQ+ very often) and you have a very easy backraise allin

      nice hand.
