      MP: $20 (100 bb)
      CO: $53.58 (267.9 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $20.64 (103.2 bb)
      SB: $21.65 (108.2 bb)
      BB: $20 (100 bb)
      UTG: $20 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J:spade: J:club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, SB calls $0.40, BB raises to $1.40, Hero calls $0.90, SB folds

      Flop: ($3.30) 9:spade: T:spade: 2:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.60, Hero calls $1.60

      Turn: ($6.50) 8:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $3.20, Hero calls $3.20

      River: ($12.90) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $12.90, Hero raises to $14.44 and is all-in, BB folds

      He 3b BU from SB his range is mega polarized. He may have: total bluffs, something like AsKs-As2s, QQ+. I am underdog vs QQ+,AsKs,AsQs, I am flipping with AsTs-As2s I scare away his bluffs. If he has flash draw then odds he has 8+3 outs = 12 so it’s something like 48% on flop without second over card. I want to pay less when he beat me, take more cash from his bluffs, have more control on what will happen.

      Hi,

      You didn't really provide any info about villain. How do you know he's mega polarized? Why don't you 4bet bluff him more to force him to be less polarized?

      I almost always prefer 4betting JJ vs aggro players in late positions. But As played I just call down on all blank runouts.

      Thanks.

      Ok I am leveling right now I mean this polarized range. You are saying that I should play 4b/c w/ JJ vs agro blinds?

      Yeah, at NL20 I think in these late positions JJ should almost always be a 4bet/call vs late position 3betters who are aggro.

      JJ doesn't play all that well postflop, 40%+ of flops will have overcards. And you should have a good amount of 4bet bluffs too, which allows you to stack off with these lower pocketpairs like TT and JJ (of course you should first know that he stacks off with worse like AQ/TT or maybe he starts shoves AXs or 22 if he thinks you are very active in 4betting)
