Hi glenn161274!

With JJ, I've got a loose passive that has never raised preflop that raises to 180. My stack's deep enough to setmine with JJ here, so I'm happy to call. If the opp was used to open-raising and was loose, then I'd try to 3-bet to isolate them. However, with them never having raised before, I'd call.

I then have a rock make a large raise, a shove and a call of the shove before I have to act again. While JJ is a good hand to setmine with against the first raiser, I don't like my situation here having to call that many chips into what will basically be a 4-way pot (I'd assume that the rock will call). There will definitely me multiple overcards out there and it's likely that there could be an overpair too. Due to this, I'm mucking JJ here and looking for a better spot.

Don't be results oriented, I think you played this one very well.
