      This question seems the same to me as the previous one. I think it is going to be a profitable open at almost any table, unless CO and BU are both super crazy 3betters then you may want to have an ultra tight opening range.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:


      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, J.
      MP2 raises to $0.75, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.75, BU calls $0.75, SB folds, Hero calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($3.1) 2, T, 3 (4 players)
      Hero bets $1.70, MP2 folds, CO folds, BU raises to $4.00, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.8.
      early  101 hands  vpip30 pfr20 af0,6 wtsd38 call to 3 BET 100                  CO  11 hands  vpip64 pfr27 af3 BU 151 hands vpip16 pfr9 af5,5 wtsd17

      I think BU raise on the flop seems to be flush draw or set,but he is tight so i folded,was it okey?

      Preflop: Perfect squeezing spot. Firstly, there is so much dead money in the pot already. Secondly, MP2 only has 10$ and he is the most likely player to play back against us. If we stack off vs his 40bb stack we are still in good shape a lot of the time. The other two callers are less likely to be strong when they flat here as opposed to 3betting the open-raiser.

      Flop: I think leading here is fine with weak players, and I think given how nitty the BU is, his raising range here is very strong so bet/folding is reasonable. He shouldn't have too many speculative hands in his preflop range when he is playing 16/9.

      But if there are so many bad players in the hand (I'm assuming MP2 and CO are both bad), then you are losing so much value by not 3-betting. This is the biggest mistake of the hand.
