      Rebuy to 100bb.

      The more CO is stealing the blinds, the more you want to just 3bet him and take it down right there. If he doesn't steal that much, then calling in position and playing postflop is fine too.

      On the flop when they both check they probably don't have anything, but BB might still call with a random gutshot or overcards given his stats. You want to see a turn to let your opponent make a 2nd best hand and get action. The problem with slowplaying here is that many turn cards will open up some straight possibilities when they make a hand for your opponent, so you might not have the best hand anymore. If you feel like you can avoid getting stacked if you get action on bad cards it's fine, but you'd probably like a flop like JJ2r more for this kind of stuff.

      Hope it helps.
