Seems lots of times I am losing money when I have overpairs to the board. If the board is paired and even when not.
This probably is a classic example I'm failing into. Any remarks to save some bucks.

BTN = 42/25/0.5
BB = unknown first hand.

I don't think folding JJ's to a 3bet, maybe I even should 4bet it and fold to shove. Not sure if that is better... but will I fold to a shove

Trouble when BB x/r that looks very strong. set/overpair.
At which part u get rid of you're Jacks?

I like your preflop flat, I think JJ is too weak at these stakes to 4-bet for value.

The flop action however pretty much dictates that you're beat, villain's line is superstrong. I'd be bet/folding this flop into 2 people and as played given turn card and action I'd fold here too.

Thanks All,
I have to make sure I watch those hands more close. Sure is a big leak in my game.
