      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.50(BB) Replayer
      SB ($90.90)
      BB ($50)
      UTG ($53.30)
      Hero ($50)
      BTN ($38.50)

      Dealt to Hero 8:diamond: J:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $2, fold, fold, BB raises to $6.50, fold

      BB wins $4.25

      This open is a bit loose but still possible, right? But I don't really know what hands can I call here. I know I have the position but his 3bet was only about 5 so probably an easy fold? What if he 3 bets something like 12 what hands could I call then?

      Against 12% a range of 77+, A8s+, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, ATo+, KJo+, QJo would be quite ok to call as I presume you are better player and can steal the pot from him from time to time (thanks to position). J8s is insta muck here unless you want to 4-bet.

      against 12% start 4-bet bluffing more, good hands for that are Ax, Kx, for blockers. And calling hands like AQ/KQ, maybe AJ, some suited connectors and big pocketpairs QQ-AA. You can also start wider your 4-bet value range 88+, AQ+ that you´re willing to 4-bet and call shove
