      When he raised my bet on the flop after that PF action,
      I was sure he had aces ...
      But on a board like that and the poker room being fishpond Everest,
      you just never know - I might as well be against TT, JJ ...

      Overplayed or standard?

      If he's a nit I would even consider folding or set mining pf since his 3betting range would almost be AA/KK maybe AKs. As played on flop it's easy fold imo. Even if he would be loose enough to 3bet you pf with JJ, 1010, I don't think he would raise there a lot on flop.

      Just fold pre if your not happy stacking off on that board. There's no need to lead out on the flop. Check/raise or check/call, check/call.

      Am shoving after he raises the flop. He should have JJ, TT, AK, bluff, enough for this to be profitable. Obv if he's a nit your probably way behind, but if that's the case you should be folding preflop anyway.

      Hey, you should be folding this pre-flop VERY often. When not folding, you should most probably be 4betting and getting it in, because if people are loose enough to 3b JJ or TT here, they're not gonna be folding to a 4b. To do this, you need a very strong read on villain. He must be a pretty crazy spew monkey!

      As played, I wouldn't fold, because if I decide to play this hand on a 3b pot, it's because I beleive my opponent will have enough JJ, TT, 99 or will bluff a lot post flop.

      As played, I actually don't mind leading this flop, because we're getting stacks in against JJ or TT regardless, but AK might choose to check behind instead of cbetting. I'd lead smaller ($1.8) to try to induce a shove from AK (or maybe just a call) and then I just ship it on the turn :evil:

      c/rAI is also a fine option ;)

      Cheers
