      My opinion, would say that preflop call is okay, since mp3 is Shortstacked and tight. Wouldnt want to move all in preflop with JJ.

      Flop: I wouldve folded with so much action , I would likely be beaten.

      But thats just My opinion :)

      Hi,


      Weird spot. If I really think MP1 is that tight I'd prefer to just fold the flop once he pot c-bets it, it's not really a good flop to c-bet overcards assuming he even raises that over a limper preflop.

      As played once I call the flop c-bet I'd play it like you did. We don't have any idea what MP1 could be minraising in that spot, it's not impossible he just wants to get all-in against MP3's short stack with Tx or something. You need to put MP3 on a premium pair most of the time and MP1 on a set or slowplayed premium too to make that lay down, since you're not risking much more money against him, while you could be ahead of MP1 if he's screwing around with a top pair or a draw. We also have some backdoors just in case, which entices us to stick around too.


      Hope it helps.
