      Final Pot: $19.5.

      villain is playing 41/12 after 128 hands. Aggression factor 2.7. His 12% range seems quite low to me, shorthanded. I didn't fancy reraising preflop. the board is not super bad and is an obvious one for him to follow up on. The bet on the turn looks like either: an attempt to keep me in the hand or a cheap second barrel. I had already decided in calling the turn bet, to fold to any action on the River and indeed I need strong reads that he's bluffing to even think about calling his river-shove.

      Main question is whether I could have made less costly decisions at any point? 3betting preflop and folding to a 4 bet seems like the most obvious one. If he just calls the 3bet then I still probably have to shut down after the flop. A flop raise is the other possibility.

      Thoughts, anyone?
      Thanks

      don´t try to get away jacks pf against 41/12 player who has less than 50bb
      I would 3-bet and shove over 4-bet with JJ
      He can 4-bet or shove a lot of worse hands than JJ
      I think c/c flop is fine, but I´d fold turn
      You´re often behind there or if he is barreling with flushdraw he has enough outs to improve and if you´re going to fold river anyway then you can also fold turn
