      Hi,


      I'd just fold the flop. His bet is committing for both of us and with 2 overcards out there already we're 2-outing against a decent part of his range. If somehow he has a draw he still has usually 7+ outs (OESD, gutshot+over, FD) , and with our JJ we block some combos of the most common drawing/spazzing hands (JT/AJ).

      If you think he's nuts and don't want to fold JJ to him, just shove over on the flop he has almost nothing left.


      Hope it helps.

      Yeah... Folding JJ are really hard for me though :)
      Thanks a lot, I will keep that in mind.
