      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 4 players) cozacu is SB J:heart: J:diamond:
      CO raises to $0.20, BTN raises to $0.60, cozacu calls $0.55, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40

      Bu 39/31 15,0 3bet cbet 100 wtsd 43 87hands
      Co 29/17 af 2,5 cbet 47 ftcbet 51 wtsd 27 FT3bet 58% 2.2k hands

      Flop= I`m not a great fan of calling, the J high flush won't be good probably, but on flop I think I`m often enough ahead with JJ.

      Turn= overbet shove, not the best decision I could have made, checking would risk checks behind, betting small would kinda ask for a shove anyway... only hands that beat us are Q9,97 and a floped flush and I would expect villains to call here with overpairs + FD, worst sets that miss played the flop, two pairs, pair+ draw hands and even some rubbish AJ or KJ.

      Was this brutally overplayed?
      How would have you played it?

      PF= call is fine both CO and Bu are fish

      Hi cozacu

      I would 4bet ($2)/call this preflop. BU has been 3betting a lot plus his sizing is very small and JJ is good enough vs his range. JJ is not the best hand to have in a multiway pot.

      Not the best flop but I would always lead here for $1.2-1.4. There are many scary cards that could come and by betting you get value from worse. If you are raised it sucks, but it would be a fold because you are only slightly ahead in a best case scenario vs A.

      I don't like overbet shove and I think it's an overplay. A $4 bet would suffice and it would allow FDs and worse hands to call. I agree that you are committed vs a shove so it would a bet/call. If you shove yourself, some weaker hands my find a reason to fold.

      #1 4bet preflop - main problem.
      #2 Lead flop - you'll get more value in a long-term and you can get away from your hand more easily.
      #3 Bet a normal amount to allow weaker hands to call.

      Preflop: Preflop is marginal but ok, especially when BU's range is so wide and it's only 6BB

      Flop: Check/calling once is fine

      Turn: I don't like the overbet jam here - You are looking super strong here. I prefer taking a check/raise all-in line. I do think that they should often be betting here themselves, when it's checked to them.
