      Hey Dracsharp,

      preflop: Fine.

      Flop: Is there any particular reason you are raising here? The standard play would be to flat on this board texture since there aren't too many worse hands that will call.

      My reason was that he is on mainly 3 hands, and i am calling similar to my raise on the turn anyway where pp coudl get an over and he doesn't bet it, or draw beats me or gets free card, and he will be betting aces.

      Ax , reraises

      PP , probably calls a raise

      Draw , i should raise

      I feel pretty confident about this raise, why i shouldn't ?

      Because I don't think pocket-pairs are calling. People don't usually bluff-raise in these spots, so they are not great spots to go for thin value either. You are turning JJ into a bluff and at the same time preventing your opponent from bluffing or value-owning himself on the turn.

      Your line will probably be +EV, I just don't think it is the line with the highest EV at these stakes.
