      River: ($21.65) T:spade: (2 players)

      I never know what to do in this spot pré-flop with hands like TT-JJ. With AQ i normally just 4bet bluff, and with AK/QQ+ i 4bet call, but with TT-JJ puffff
      The river let me thinking, against some regs i would just c/c and wait for a AK with :diamond: , but against this guy (15% agg% river!!!) i dont expect many bluffs with such low agg%. My hand also looks like AQ inducing. I think he might have AA with :diamond: or flush, maybe even TT. What do you think?

      The main problem with cold calling JJ is that it basically turns your hand face up. You might want to check Siete777's recent videos on this topic.

      Personally I would cold 4bet bluff a ton here, with blocker stuff like KQ/AJ/AT. So this allows me to 4bet/broke vs most aggro BU players.

      I don't think leading the Turn serves any purpose. I rather check again and see what happens. Maybe I'll contemplate a bet if the river is a blank and they continue checking.

      I dont see players going over cold 4bets with hands like TT or AQ. Should i 4bet/call JJ anyway?
      Is this you are talking about?

      I'm talking about his cold calling 3bets preflop videos. So I'm referring to the first two videos in your search results.

      If you have a high overall 4bet range %, then you can definitely 4bet/broke with JJ here. If you are known to be more on the passive side, then I think you would have no choice but to cold call JJ. And that makes your hand very easy to play against. But if your opponents are not capitalizing on your narrow range and making good plays against you, then it's not going to be too bad of a play.
