      Known players:

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with J:club: , J:spade:
      Hero raises to $1.00, 4 folds, CO calls $1.00, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($3.10) Q:diamond: , 8:spade: , 6:spade: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero folds, CO raises to $1.00, BB calls $0.35 (All-In), CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($4.80) 4:heart:
      River: ($4.80) A:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.80


      I wasn't sure about this one at all. As far as I can tell, I didn't have odds to call (2 outs and pott odds of 7.4:1). Pushing seemed like a bad idea since there were two players. On the other hand, I didnt like folding JJ on a fairly tame flop . . and since the bet was so small it could have been speculative rather than a show of strength.

      You have too small sample size to make any use of stats, so against two villains without made hand it's an easy fold.

      I might however push against the BB if it was HU, but I'd need also some info he's loose and aggressive or some reads about his donkbets.

      Hello Johnbeattie85,

      According to my Odds/Outs chart a 2 outer means you have to get 22,5:1 for 1 card to be profitable

      Since you only get 7:1, you cannot call here with Jacks
      I think you are quite squeezed here since you do not know what CO does when you have to decide , therefore I elect to safe fold this one althoudh BB is very weak in the sense of both stack & betting line.
