      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.58 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J:club: , J:heart:
      Hero raises to $1,00, 3 folds, SB calls $0,90, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2,25) 4:diamond: , J:diamond: , A:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1,50, SB raises to $3,00, Hero raises to $11,75, SB raises to $20,50, Hero raises to $23,98 (All-In), SB calls $3,48.

      Final Pot: $50,21

      Hero's aim was to put villain all-in. Since he had a good hand, it was not so hard. However, since hero did not know that, would not it be better just to call vaillain's (first) re-raise and than to go all-in on the turn (villain would likely have bet the turn). On the other hand, hero had to protect his hand against a possible flush. Moreover, in the past, villain folded to hero's cbet on the flop, so it was likely that he had a good hand.

      You have to consider a few things here:
      It is A high board, so villain would unlikely to go c/r as pure bluff.
      If he went for c/r then imo it is best to try to get as much money in the pot on the flop, as you can with second nuts.
      I think your 3-bet on the flop is too huge. You´re committing yourself into pot and villain would fold likely his flushdraw. I´ll rather make it 9$ and give villain illusion that he can shove draw with fold equity.
      Just calling flop is bad, since you give villain free hand, which could cost you stack and you can´t shove turn, since flop is too small for that.
