      villain looks pretty decent, a little passive 24/20 3b:4 AF:2
      ftcb: 0/4

      should i just ship the flop here or call and keep his bluffs in?
      imo he very rarely has sets here, either fold pre or just call flop

      disadvantage of 3b flop is ofc pushing out hands like TT/JJ/maybe QQ

      I'd rather call and let his random JT hit a pair or let him barrel. If he has a strong overpair the money is likely to go in anyway. Even if he has JJ and a Q comes on the turn you should still be able to get another bet from him on the river in mye experience.

      Of course my gameplan would change if I have a better idea of his raising strategy in 3bet pots. If he doesn't raise air but goes thinly for value with say 99+ A8+ then calling is a disaster, we should just get it in as fast as possible. But I think in general players are more likely to call than raise with JJ- here.
