      Is this a fold? I beat JJ and AQ, and I don't think he is 2nd barreling them.

      I'm usually folding that at nl4, the probability that a 16/11/2 is 3betting AND bluff barreling the turn in a 3bet pot is low, even SBvsBU. There is no way he plays JJ/AQ like that, we'd be calling for a split at best with maybe the occasional bluff.

      Since you called make sure you note what he took this 1/2 c-bet flop / overbet jam turn line with. Either he sucks at bet sizing and he's not capable of betting enough on the flop to create a less than potsize turn shove, or he didn't really want to go broke on the flop and really liked the turn card.

      Hope it helps.
