      CO is probably fish with his raise. But we have to be carefull here. Such moves indicates monster hand lot of times so we must be carefull here.

      but i dont have a clue how would i react in that situation....so strange spot:)

      I really look forward to se judges oppinion. Kaitz20 will be happy to judge this one.:)

      yeah, I also see a lot of fish min-3betting monsters. We get great oods for calling pre-flop, but then the question is whether we'll go broke with an overpair. Cause if we are, then we might as well push pre-flop and get more value against AK/AQ and his bad calls with lower PPs.

      against his stack size I´d likely just 4-bet pf to 7$ and call shove
      He can do that with wider range than aces/kings and until you have some reads it is mostly aces I would just take that as standard situation adn 4-bet pf JJ
      Postlfop: really difficult and I think fold is a little better than shove
      Don´t think SB is making too many moves with air, so he either has there draws, sometimes 99/TT or set, sometimes QQ+. JJ is not doing the best against these range

      SB coldcalling OOP preflop against a R and weak 3bet is first alarm bell for me. So I like calling here.

      His flop line is very strong, so easy fold as played.

      I would check the flop, letting CO cbet his range, and see what SB did then. If he raised after that, I would expect an overpair, if he just called, more likely a set looking for more value.
