      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 9 players) Hero is MP2 J:club: J:spade:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1, 2 folds, bofner calls $1, 2 folds

      Hero bets $1.25, bofner goes all-in $4.76, Hero calls $3.51

      I could never fold JJ on board like this.
      It was drawy but still, my JJ looked way too strong for this.
      What do you think ?

      Hey asmirovic,

      Overpair = strong made hand -> ALL-IN, easy as pie. ;)

      If the board is drawy it's even better for you because then villains will call you with draws which you are ahead of and you also need to protect against them. So, nice hand, but I would make a bigger c-bet because of drawy board, 1.5-1.75$.

      Regards,

      THx.
      Unfortunately villain limped AA preflop here, so there was no help
