Hi sandip504!

With JJ in the BB, I get a limp, then standard raise by the button to 80. Since it's early and the stacks are deep enough to do so, I'm going to call here and try to setmine.

By calling here, I can get off the hand if I get an unfavorable board and I can still win a decent pot if I hit a jack.

When the flop comes out with 3 unders, I can either make a standard lead value bet (2/3 pot) or I can check and call a bet by the preflop raiser if it's small enough.

When I see the turn with chips left, then I can muck to a bet when the ace comes.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
