Villain is 15/9, 3bet 1,7 aggro factor 3,4 over 261 hands.
What to do here, we are out of position which is teh lame, and his turn raise reps strong range, but there are some draws also, which villain could be semibluffing.

Baluga Theorem in action? The more i see it i think i need to call turn and evaluate, because we have straight blockers. Or does it mean that it is harder for villain to have a hand that could be semibluffing, like J8.
These spots are just so awful for me, when i call turn if river bricks i call that often too and i just feel like this is huge leak.

Nh, well played. In a multiway pot I would give a lot more credit to both the continuing range OTF and turn raising ranges. Of course he could be raising a couple of draws here and utilize the Q as a scarecard but given his tighter stats and the strength of you firing into 2 people as the UTG raiser makes his play look very strong. You will have a tough spot here often enough with AA/KK/AQ etc. that folding JJ seems very much likea good play.
