JJ Against 4 Bet PF

cmanganocmangano Red Chipper Posts: 38 ✭✭
Zone, 5NL, 6 Max. Assume standard micro players

Hero is dealt :Jh:Js in BB

100BB Effective stacks

HJ Raises 3 BB
Button Calls
SB Calls
Hero squeezes for 20 BB
HJ 4 bets 48BB
Button and SB fold

And here we are gross. There is already 77BB in the pot and I have to call 28BB so I am getting almost 3:1. If I call the SPR is going to be about 1 so I am pretty much committed. So maybe calling is the worst option, maybe shove or fold are my choices? Maybe now that I look back this is a fold? What's his realistic 4bet range here? KK+/AK+?

    My guess is your 3-bet is too big so you get trapped in no-man's land.

    Your squeeze is pretty large. 13.5-15bb gets the job done as well as 20bb and saves chips when you get 4-bet. This is part of the reason you felt so gross when he 4-bet.

    Also, you are getting ~3:1 on your immediate call, however when you call you are effectively committing the rest of your stack.

    My normal 3 bet/squeeze size in this spot would be 12-15 BB but considering the 2 limpers I made it bigger. So ya, looks like that is where the mistake was made.

    Thank you both for your replies.

    If something like this happens again though I'd say the price laid is good enough to commit. Just click rebuy before the hands over lol
