      CO: $45.56 (91.1 bb)
      BTN: $55.65 (111.3 bb)
      SB: $35.68 (71.4 bb)
      BB: $72.19 (144.4 bb)
      Hero (MP): $56.21 (112.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J J
      Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, SB raises to $4.50, BB folds, Hero raises to $10, SB calls $5.50

      Flop: ($21) 3 3 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $25.58 and is all-in, Hero calls $25.58

      Turn: ($72.16) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($72.16) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $72.16 pot ($3 rake)
      Final Board: 3 3 9 8 7
      SB showed Q Q and won $69.16 ($33.48 net)
      Hero showed J J and lost (-$35.68 net)

      Vilain is a fish 41/14 208 hand 3,6% 3bet overall.

      I heard that the fewer the stack, the wider we should broke preflop. But maybe I m wrong and the % 3bet means all.

      Anyway, should I broke JJ vs not full stack fish here ? Let's say no. Should I fold preflop ? Call ip to set mine or hoping a showdown with position ?

      Hi Dobermann,

      His 3-bet is rather small over a decent sample which implies a stronger range. I'd say that at most we are facing AK, AQs, QQ+ and against that range we aren't doing that great.

      We also have little FE when we 4-bet so I don't mind just calling and playing IP. And on flops such as this we go with the hand but fold Q-K-A flops.

      If the fish were more aggressive then 4-bet/call is perfectly fine. Or if the sample was smaller and 3-bet% wasn't as reliable.
