      This time i had an easy decision, but I would like to use this hand for theoretical question- how to play against UTG (with no 3bet from MP)? With AK I'm almost always 3bet/folding here, but with JJ I'm not sure- from one hand I could call for set value but on a low board I tend to get my self in to trouble OOP.

      3bet/folding isn't a bad plan, but i mostly call there (not just for set value) against a UTG raise from a 14/8 and play postflop when the texture is decent. Set, overpair, 2nd pair, maybe even less if he c-bets very often, i don't mind calling one or two bets out of position if i feel like his range is still wide enough for me to be good (probably rarely calling 2 bets out of that particular guy with less than an overpair tho).

      Hope it helps.
