      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.62 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:spade: , J:spade:
      MP2 raises to $1,00, MP3 folds, Hero calls $1,00, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($2,35) 3:diamond: , T:heart: , J:club: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $1,35, Hero calls $1,35.

      Turn: ($5,05) 5:heart: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $3,00
      Final Pot: $5,05

      preflop? I know I can be dominated but villian is pretty tight and I can hit nice draws postflop. If players behind me are on the loose side should I be even more inclined to call with KJs right?

      If you believe the blinds will call with garbage and make your immediate preflop odds decent, you can call with that hand hoping to flop something big in a multiway pot. If you don't, you'll have bad reverse implied odds against a 15/11 raising from UTG, just fold it unless you're confident you can avoid troubles postflop (which mostly means being able to fold top pair on the turn).

      Hope it helps.
