      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:heart: , J:club:
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0,40, 4 folds, Hero raises to $1,20, MP2 calls $0,80.

      Hero checks, MP2 bets $4,31, Hero folds.

      Should I 2nd barrel here? Or is it better to just check/fold? A 2nd barrel would commit me to the pot

      should play call 20 preflop I think instead of re-raising, especially when you will be out of position postflop. By re-raising you built a biggish pot with a marginal hand and put yourself in an awkward siuation on the flop

      I think the same, call preflop for set value and if you didn't hit your set fold. Or if your Jacks make an overpair you can continue I suppose.

      for me nice hand.

      imho it's better to 3 bet with JJ when you will be OOP postflop than call.What you gona do every time u not hit set? without initiative ant OOP.Fold every time.Most of the time you should 3bet, sometimes call for set value.I think JJ-TT is strong enough and can sometimes 3bet and that expands your 3bet range.
      On flop cbet is ok on A high board.You can do a bit less cbet because of board.
      On turn decision is depends on opp.Most of the time I wouldn't IIbarrel because he called cbet on A high board,he can play wa/wb with tptk.I'd barrel second time when I have stats on 3bet pots and know he can fold enough to turn bet.
      Good luck :)

      you played it well
      being oop 3 bet 1 - 2 bb more to to give him worse odds to call in position
      when you 3 bet pre you have to cbet that flop with all of your range . you can cbet lower because people wont float you light on dry a high boards
      when you get called you give up
