      Hi,

      if you 4-bet preflop and get a low flop like this you have to go broke I guess.
      Other way would be to just call minraise preflop and raise this flop if he bets and call a shove.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      Thanks Anin

      I think this sums it up. I thought the min raise preflop was sign of weakness so I 4 betted it thought he would fold and got scared. I have a overpair so i probably should have 3 betted the flop.

      This, simply put.

      If the guy has been tight before over a decent sample and he's min3betting for the first time i'll usually play JJ very cautiously, if he's doing that often and you think he has garbage either of animIII's lines is fine.


      Hope it helps.
