The only read I have on the guy is that once I had KK and in deepstack he reraised me all in with his AKoff. So that could indicate being agro...

I think a fold here is good ey? as he is representing good strength.

Hi Etienne,

Without reads on the button, it's generally just better to fold directly to his 3b. I realize that sounds weak with JJ, but without specific exploitable reads you're just not going to be able to play this spot profitably out of position on only 100 bb's. If you 4b you're value owning yourself too often, you don't have great implied odds to set mine out of position and you'll be either check-folding the flop a lot, or continuing in a spot where if you're good you will win a medium-sized pot, and if you're not you'll get felted a ton. With specific reads you might know how to play this profitably (like vs a very laggy player just 4b and get it in as they'll stack off plenty of worse hands for example.

I do like the fold to the flat back-raise jam.
