      without stats, it depends on whether you like variance or not.
      if not, play it like you did

      don't think you can stand up and call this a bad/good fold as long as you don't have infos about the other 2 players

      good luck!

      Hello kuorou,

      as mentioned in your other thread, without reads or stats it's most of the time most +EV to stick to basic strategy. According to basic strategy JJ is a push when your raise gets reraised. You will usually be behind their raising range, true, but because you already invested money in the pot you don't need 50%+ equity against them.

      On the other hand, if you have a read UTG2 is PS.com SSS player then you can safely fold, because he will raise your UTG raises with KK+, but you would need a reliable read about that.

      Regards!
