      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has J:diamond: J:club:

      fold, MP raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.90, MP calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.85, 2 players) T:diamond: K:heart: 8:heart:
      Hero bets $1.32, MP raises to $3.00, fold

      MP wins $4.27

      3betting preflop does look fine in any case against villain.

      On flop I lead due to initiative and K on flop and a tonn of draws that can call.

      Against a raise I think mostly AK,Kx hands are in his range.
      I do not want to get into large calls later so I decide to fold.

      Hey Ilioas,

      It is unlikely 3betting preflop here is going to be the best option vs MP open, you are unlikely to be a favourite vs the range that continues.

      The fact that there is K on the flop when you hold JJ is not good, it should incline you more towards a check. The fact that there are draws should incline you more towards a cbet.

      However, villain doesn't have that many draws in his range seeing as he gets to the flop with a pretty tight range anyway. The draws that he does have are basically flipping with you.

      Given villain's range, I'd c/f flop.
