      hes pretty loose with 47% VPIP and has 43% flop agg. all he needs is 2 pairs or better to beat me. however does he have top pair or flush draws often enough for me to call him with his mid stack?

      i don't like 3betting utg small - mid stacks with JJ unless they are fish.

      expect TT+ occasional AK or even AQ, which they are more likely to shove preflop.

      Hi,


      Agreed I'm not folding. You'll see players ship the dumbest hands in that spot, I remember a guy open jamming close to 200bb into a ~22bb pot with TPNK in a spot like that. Even giving him just AK/AQ as overcards is timid, I think you'll see a lot more air hands than that. Plus if somehow we're behind we have backdoors draws and we can always counterfeit two pairs or make a set along the way, I just don't see enough of a reason to find a fold there. NH.


      Hope it helps.
