      Villain is 26/22/13 126 hands. I think that my bigest mistake is not 3-betting him pre. But post flop I dont know. His cbet is 64% so I think that with 2 overs and lower pps he dont barrel this board. What do you think ?

      I don't hate it as played, he won't have 8x that often and for every TT in there he's got thrice as many QQ+. He looks laggy enough to isolate with JTs but you have two J so it's discounted by half, he might have overs with a turned flushdraw if he even c-bet that board with these, but when he pots it twice into you i don't think it's worth pursuing either on the turn.

      As for the preflop 3bet i'm not so sure, yes SB often has broadways garbage because he's isolating the fish a lot and you'll have a hard time continuing on Q/K/A boards, but you'll also blow UTG out of the pot almost always, and SB likely won't continuing playing with you out of position without a hand that rivals with JJ. Maybe he calls with lower medium pocket pairs or AQ/KQs, but most players will be even tighter, and he'll 4bet AK/QQ+/somebluffs forcing you to fold JJ. All-in-all i think i'd also call and play postflop with a good but not great hand instead of turning it into a preflop war.

      Hope it helps.
