      another hand from last night.

      Cassava Poker $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em - 10 players - View hand 471907

      MP3: $10.87
      CO: $19.30
      BTN: $3.50
      SB: $25.02
      Hero (BB): $20.00
      UTG: $8.89
      UTG+1: $15.71
      UTG+2: $34.99
      MP1: $28.83
      MP2: $9.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is BB with J :diamond: J :heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.20, 3 folds, MP3 raises to $0.60, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.80, 1 fold, MP3 calls $1.20

      I am always going to re-raise here with JJ - the player in the cutoff is new (only 17 hands on him) so no real reads - I see this as a chance to get some! I get the 1 caller so having to play OOP again - seems to happen a lot lately!

      Flop: ($3.90) 3 :club: 6 :diamond: 5 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, MP3 raises to $4, Hero raises to $18.20, MP3 calls $5.07 all in

      Got my overpair but hands like A4 and 44 could be a problem so I bet out (with a different board I may have checked but not here). His raise is a bit of a suprise but I decide that if he has a better pair or a set then fair play and I shove in case he is raising on a draw!

      Turn: ($22.04) 5 :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($22.04) A :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Did I play this ok? Should I have called and then c-called the turn?

      I would just like some thoughts on other lines I could have taken here. Thanks

      Guesses as to villans hand are always welcome
