      So far I was never 3betting TT and JJ now I tried. And this is why I really dont like 3betting it. It is rarely overpair, and then you never know if your bet is for value.

      3bet is definitely the better play. We have value and can isolate vs the fish. We can also fold vs a 4bet very easily without making a mistake.

      1) I think your 3bet is a little too large. We want to keep his range wide so just make it 6bb. We want him to play 22-99 and also stuff like AT KT JT QT which we dominate.

      2) Flop is close between bet and check.

      3) I am not sure why you are betting the Turn. He never folds a jack, he has some QX hands like QT Q9s which are improved by the turn. We have some showdown value vs 8X and 7X so this is a standard check.
