I had similar trouble Friday.

I opened from middle ~$13 with :JC: :JD:
Button 3bet me to ~$30
BB asks button his stack size then 4bets to about ~$90
I call
Button folds.

Flop was low stuff like 3 7 9

BB bets again about 1/2 pot.
I call
Turn was blank perhaps 2
BB puts me all in for call.

After a minute I folded. I decided he had a set and really I should have folded the flop. Maybe he had AK. But not likely. This happened to my QQ earlier same day.

I need to get comfortable shoving or folding these preflop since I know I don't want to call post. Even with no over cards...

1) include effective stacks. Looks like your playing a $1/$3 game based on your open. I'll assume effective stacks are $300 (100bb).

2) You provided zero information about the players. Unless BB is a maniac a cold 4 bet is almost always KK+ & AKs, which JJ does very poorly against.

Hero ($300) opens MP :JC: :JD: to $13
BTN ($300) 3 bet to $30
BB ($300) cold 4 bet to $90
Hero calls $90
BTN folds

Flop ($210) :9D: :7C: :3S:
BB ($210) bets $105
Hero ($210) calls $105

Turn ($420) :9D: :7C: :3S: :2H:
BB all in $105
Hero folds
After a minute I folded. I decided he had a set and really I should have folded the flop.

You think BB is cold 4 betting 99, 77, and 33? Very unlikely. It is very likely that you should have folded preflop however.

    I just sat down after a table change. Probably $180 in my stack. $1/$2.

    I agree. I am new to folding JJ and QQ. When I had QQ initial raiser OOP had KQ and button 4bettor had AA. Just getting my mind right.
