      This is my first hand I will post, I try to improve my game, hopefully I would become a regular poster..

      I have had quite an extensive history with UTG and would consider myself preflop ahead most of the times. During the hand, I contemplated r on the flop since I still consider myself ahead. Some 5 hands before, I won app 4$ from him without showdown, he bet 2 times oop and folded to my raise when an A hit. his WTS indicates he finds folding a bit hard.. but still at river, i cannot put him on the hand i am beating.. he had lost the very previous hand bcs of kicker vs SS, might be steaming with AK? (my guesses> 99 or TT or even 22) still I am not sure if I could lose some less money here.. probably squeezing preflop was an option, but I wanted to slowplay JJ vs his agression in pos..

      any ideas how to play differently postflop?

      I think reraise on the turn. that way you at least get a free card on the river (or you know that you should fold). I would reraise preflop though because you have position and you'll get much more information based on what he does facing your 3bet.

      the problem with rraising turn is that even with minr i would have less than 6$ left vs almost 22$ pot so i would be pretty much pot comitted.

      3bet preflop! Easy play for stacks with this guy in 3bet pot on this board, you are only 75 BB deep. As played cal river easy!

      Hi TheLastNail.
      If you put him QQ+, then you should fold turn.
      If not then probably calldown is fine, but also fold on the river is fine, since it is not that likely that he´d triple barrle with AK.
      I think your hand is a lot easier to play if you 3-bet pf and fold to 4-bet
      Or other option raise flop and get money all-in, since you´re still ahead his range and he can´t put you on JJ.
