      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $65.84
      BB:
      $49.83
      MP3(Hero):
      $50.50
      CO:
      $49.25
      BU:
      $55.99


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $2.00, CO calls $2.00, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($4.75) 4, 2, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, CO raises to $7.51, Hero raises to $20.00, CO calls $12.49.

      Turn: ($44.75) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $27.75, CO calls $27.25(All-In).

      River: ($99.75) 8 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $99.75.

      Also, is there any difference between this hand and this one: NL50 KK Overpair on the flop? In the KK hand I called because 10 is much more likely in his range than a 4 in the JJ hand. Is this reasoning correct or should I raise in both?

      I might think about just calling flop as I've seen many players bluffraise flops like this and want to keep their bluffing range in the hand to hang themselves a bit more. Its unlikely he's hit and he can think we're weak with a call.

      That said we are slightly scared of overcards coming turn+river.....

      Yes there is a difference between this and the KK hand as 442 is a flop that is a lot harder for him to him than TT7.

      The line i usually prefer here is not 3betting the flop and then hopefully check raising the turn. but obviously it needs to be an agressive opponent to do this.

      I think here I like getting all-in and 3-betting flop
      Since he didn´t raise that big, so likely he is doing that with overpair to see where is at, but likely he won´t really fold to 3-bet.
      and turn is easy shove, he would still call it off with 88 or smt like that
