Re: JJ flop

Yeah I don't know sounds like a little too much hoping in this hand, a Q could easily been in this guys range yeah maybe not QQ or even AQ, but KQ QJ Q10 are all plausible. I personally would take the betting approach, if you're planning to go with it on most flops you're better off just taking the lead and c betting, and if someone comes over the top you can then decide to call or not depending on what happens, if he calls and the turn bricks or whatever you can play from there. At this point to shove over this players bet would be just playing a guessing game to whether or not he hit it, and in most cases they do.

i can't see him folding QT if we bet. he may fold a pair. if hes got something like A7s hes probably folding to a bet from us too. if we bet we have less than 10BB behind so we can't really bet fold. we really need to double up.

Re: JJ flop

Yeah bet folding isn't right, you started the hand with 15BB it honestly might make more sense to just push all in pre flop, playing JJ with a short stack can sometimes be a headache.

Re: JJ flop

check shove he's most likely calling with a Q, sometimes TT ou 99 but less likely only if he has a LAG image given your remaining stack isn't that much, and we dont want to have a 2 outer against a Q, you block QJ but KQ, QT even Q9 or other weak queens are plausible due to his stack, i would probably call once and fold to any bets on the turn since it's a very dry board e isn't likely to be semi-bluffing, if you had more chips and he had a weak queen he probably folds but not looking like it

Why pushing mate?
A c bet of about 33%of the pot is nice

Re: JJ flop

First thing that I notice is your preflop sizing, do you always open 3x when you are this short? But JJ is good hand to jam preflop if there is some villains that might call too loose but I also like to open it 2.5x if theres left some villains that might 3bet jam it too loose. On the flop I would just check fold unless the guy who raised is a total maniac. JJ on Qxx flop obviously aint very strong hand in 3 way hand.
