      Was really unhappy with this hand but not sure what to change. Maybe I should just cold 4bet/call, but I don't think it will be great either.

      I would usually cold 4bet and call it off actually. It's BvB, you get less credit. You only need him to 3bet/5bet JJ and TT some of the time and you have a profit. I dislike cold calling 3bets because of how your range looks like, especially BvB. If it were vs UTG and MP you can definitely reconsider. As played, I think you kind of have to call. Your thinking/assumption preflop is that he will be reasonably wide so your JJ does well on many boards. He also likes barreling once he cbets so when you still have an overpair, I think it's hard to justify calling pre and folding it postflop here when you didn't get good odds to setmine either.
