      Villain is 14/11, 3 bets 7%, 13% from BTN, over 545 hands

      I'm not sure if calling better than 4 bet bluffing here, I doubt he stacks off worse. Even though we're oop can we call here v what appears to be a wide range?

      As played , can we call turn here as well?, I'm not sure that he barrels super wide here given that he must know how tight I am oop v 3 bets. He probably also has a ton of Qx in his range as well.

      Preflop: 4betting JJ as a bluff doesn't make any sense. You either 4b/call or call the 3b OOP. I think you should avoid calling too much and you should be 4betting a ton of air so that you can profitably 4bet/call JJ in late positions.

      Flop: c/C seems standard.

      Turn: I think it's hard to say what the best play is without reads. But to point out a few things

      -I think FR players don't barrel as much as they should
      -JJ is pretty much the best non QX hand to call, we block 2 outs from AK to hit the gutshot straight.

      If you think he barrels AK on Turn and gives up on River, then you should c/c the Turn again.
