      Hero (BTN): $13.77 (137.7 bb)
      SB: $9.09 (90.9 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $18.79 (187.9 bb)
      MP: $9.04 (90.4 bb)
      CO: $7.18 (71.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K K
      UTG calls $0.10, MP raises to $0.40, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB calls $1.20, BB folds, UTG calls $1.15, MP calls $0.85

      Flop: ($5.10) 7 8 J (4 players)
      SB bets $7.84 and is all-in, 3 folds

      $5.10 pot ($0.23 rake)
      Final Board: 7 8 J
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$1.25 net)
      SB mucked and won $4.87 ($3.62 net)
      UTG mucked and lost (-$1.25 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$1.25 net)

      SB is unknown but looks like a weak player with the stack size.

      he snap jammed the flop and i expect a range like AA,QQ-JJ,AsKs,AsQs. i include AA and QQ as some sort of slowplay

      is folding okay here?

      Preflop 3betting is fine.

      I'm not really sure about folding here. I can't really say that folding here is a bad play without information, but even against AA,QQ-JJ,AsKs,AsQs and we need 37%, also we can exlude hands like AA (or could give him 2-3 combos or so), and probably we can add a hand like AJ/KJ or so.
      So overall, I would rather call here.

      can something not be said for my perceived range here tho? i understand that weak players arent exactly thinking about my range the way a better player might, but they still give some really crude estimations. an example is always being worried about AK and AA if they get 3bet. the assumption they are making is that a 3bet is considerably stronger than is often the case...

      in this hand i was assuming that the weaker guy would at least acknowledge that i have a "really strong hand" given my play, which is what made me favour a fold here.

      i would likely call here for a variety of reasons.

      1. villain is not full stacked
      2. villain cold called 3bet oop
      3. most players would favour a check/raise oop with 3 opponents behind with JJ/88/77/T9/J8/J7/87
      4. insta jamming seems really fishy, and i would weight his hands more towards fds/pair +gutters/pair +fd/ AJ/KJ, etc.
