      Preflop: marginal call

      Flop: With two shoves in front you could be behind here but have lots of outs to a full house or quads. Good call.

      If I'm playing JJ, I'm putting $$ in the middle. Cold calling is not my preferred choice, I would have much rather pumped it up 3 or 4x his bet.

      JJ is one of those hands I have so much trouble with. There's no right way to play...and there's no wrong way to play them.

      cold calling JJ should only be done for set value, as is the case here where it has no showdown value.

      I think you can also sometimes 3-bet pf, but calling is definetely there fine and not only for set value.
      Turn- you beat AA, KK, two pair hands and loose only Q and straight.
      I´d also call there.

      Hi marselio,

      I can't say I really like your call here. Against no limpers and a somewhat tight raiser I think it's OK. But here you have one min-raise, a call, and a very small raise, when you just call, you invite UTG and UTG+1 to come along for the ride by giving them great odds (when you probably still have the best hand), and that's not the kind of hand I like to play a multiway pot.
      So I'd go for a raise (~$1.25), you'll probably take the pot down right there. If not you'll most likely get HU IP with initiative post-flop.

      Couldn't play it another way.
