      BTN: $42.46 (84.9 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J J
      Hero raises to $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, SB folds, BB raises to $6, Hero folds, BTN calls $4.50

      Flop: ($13.75) 4 T 4 (2 players)
      BB checks, BTN bets $8, BB folds

      $13.75 pot ($0.68 rake)
      Final Board: 4 T 4
      BB mucked and lost (-$6 net)
      BTN mucked and won $13.07 ($7.07 net)

      BTN is 36/14 fish and for the reg :

      I think the reg is always having some hand for value imo. Which option sucks the least here ?(

      Both calling and folding are usually fine here. If you call, fish calls, more implied odds and reg is honest, he can't bluff vs you and a calling station plus you know he starts with a decent range meaning more implied odds for hitting a set. If you don't hit a set, you can be confident BB check/folds his air and BU gives you value.

      Unless you are confident to play though, folding is also fine, I don't think it's too weak but definitely a spot where you can defend.
