      I would bet potsize on the flop to protect your overpair a bit more. Other than that, nice hand (note the villain, looks like nice fish :) )

      According to the stats the villain looks like a fish so I would bet potsize bet as well after the flop but if you didn't knew the stats I would push after the flop. Because JJ is very dangerous hand and you can get beaten easily. Lets see what judges advice.

      Hi justkyle88,

      I think it's normal way to handle the situation. Until you normally make a potsize bet on the flop when there are draws around (and make it always, even if you don't hit!) it's ok to bet just 2/3. You cannot act different when you hit and when you're just contibetting.
