      NL Holdem $0.05(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($5.48)
      BB ($1.13)
      UTG ($17.87)
      UTG+1 ($5)
      CO ($3.80)
      BTN ($5)

      Dealt to Hero J:diamond: J:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.45, BB calls $0.40, fold

      FLOP ($1.05) A:spade: 4:heart: 6:diamond:

      Hero bets $0.70, BB calls $0.68 (AI)

      TURN ($2.41) A:spade: 4:heart: 6:diamond: 7:spade:

      RIVER ($2.41) A:spade: 4:heart: 6:diamond: 7:spade: T:diamond:

      BTN is 21/16 regular, BB is unknown.

      I have problems with playing JJ, hands looks strong but also kind of easy to overplay. Is 3 betting ok here? Should I play the same way pre-flop with other pocket pairs?

      Should I call or 3bet if I were facing an open raise from CO (reg) when I'm BTN?

      Preflop 3betting is fine but I'd make it $0.55.
      I'd 3bet here TT+. If we we CO vs BU it depends on how often do you think CO will call you with worse or stack off with worse. Against unknown one can debate about both calling and 3betting being right and I do tend to call most of the times in these spots.

      As played preflop, the ace on the flop really sucks.
      I would just play c/c to let him bluff here or bet some weaker hands.
