      I usually check/raise my sets directly all-in on such a drawheavy flop.
      I think you will even get more calls that way, since your line "looks like a draw".

      And I'd almost never fold JJ preflop in a CO vs BU Situation.

      Hi Puschkin81,

      Acording to the SHC, JJ on a raise behind is call15. Strictly speaking then you should have folded pf , right?

      Thanks atuerke!

      @ gungunhana: that is correct if you play strictly according to the SHC. But here the game is 5-handed which means there are less good hands in the game and we are in a typical blind stealing situation which means that BU could interpret my raise as an attempt to steal the blinds and tries to resteal. To make a long story short: We could easily still have the best hand here. That's why a call is ok although we don't have 15-times the amount we have to call left.

      Good luck at the tables!
