      fold preflop is best

      as played fold the turn i think. it's a bad card for him to continue bluffing on so unless you think he 3bets with AT preflop he is betting with an overpair a lot of the time here.

      Hello,

      As DrDunne said, I would just fold this preflop. Usually people are quite tight against UTG raises, so JJ doesn't really stand good in this spot.

      Postflop I would just call on one street and fold the turn. Don't really expect him to bluff here on more than one street.

      Best,
