      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $3.43
      BU:
      $9.78
      SB:
      $5.09
      BB:
      $5.51
      MP2 (Hero):
      $8.12
      MP3:
      $3.93


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $0.15, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.50, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.35, CO raises to $3.43, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.42.


      i guessed that his holdings on a 5-bet was likely to be QQ+, AK, and he was not exactly short and i could get away with my JJs, i did not want to flat his 3bet as i was going to be playing oop.

      You can't fold even if his holdings are QQ+, AK. Compare your equity vs that range (36%), to the equity needed to call profitably (30%).

      This. Didn't redo the calc but consider you put close to 40% of the effective stacks in with your 4-bet it sounds accurate. 4-bet/folding is way worse than calling the 3-bet.


      Hope it helps.
