      Hello happyteerak,

      I would not fold as soon as you 4bet the small blind. I would go raise/broke for QQ+,AK automatically but with JJ here I prefer a smoothcall IP because of his statistics

      So if played as a smooth call pre flop then what? Shove it all in on the flop or turn? Yes as he has nothing at this point in hind sight I might have been able to get him to fold, but of course during the hand we dont know this, and I wouldbe playing with overcards on the board.

      No he wont fold if you reraise his $0.80 raise becuase he plays relatively solid (18/12 as in statistics ;) )

      On the Flop you can fold all Kx, Ax boards and continue on Qxx and lower boards as in call Flop&Turn
