      SB: 101.5 BB
      Hero (BB): 447.95 BB
      CO: 98 BB
      BTN: 130.15 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:club: J:heart:

      fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, SB raises to 10 BB, Hero calls 9 BB, fold

      Flop: (23 BB, 2 players) 7:diamond: 4:diamond: 4:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 9 BB, SB calls 9 BB

      Turn: (41 BB, 2 players) J:spade:
      SB bets 20.5 BB, Hero calls 20.5 BB

      River: (82 BB, 2 players) 2:heart:

      SB shows K:club: A:club: (One Pair, Fours) (Pre 46%, Flop 28%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows J:club: J:heart: (Full House, Jacks full of Fours) (Pre 54%, Flop 72%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 196 BB

      BU 909 hands, 21/16, fold to 3bet 77
      SB 526 hands, 31/23 3bet 14, fold to 3bet 56

      SB is huge fish, stacks off easily with air, or middle pair. I was not sure how he reacts to 4bets, so I wanted to play JJ IP against him. I am not sure if it is bad to call because Bu can join and hit set or high card.

      If BU calls, just play vs his range. You account for him possibly flopping sets. You realise how strong your overpair is and decide you can or cannot put in more money into the pot.

      Since BU folded, you have easy play ofc and would not do anything different. :)

      Regarding 4betting: In these positions JJ would be the first hand I add to my 4bet/stack off range since it's just the best hand after QQ+, AK.
