Pocket J's in the CO, 3 limpers before me so I bet 6x BB BB raises 43c probably should have folded to this cbet as villian had following stats VP15/PF15/AF6.0 although this was only over 20 hands so not garanteed to be accurate.

I called and flop couldn't have been any worse As Kc 7s so flush draw out there and two overcards to my pair and both within OP's range OP bets about 1/2 pot and I call.

Turn gets worse when another Ace comes OP checks so I check behind as I suspect I am way behind here.

When the river comes it gets far worse with the Qs completing any spade flush draw and any 10J straight draw and 3 overcards to my pair.

OP goes all in so I fold.

Question is should I have got out of this sooner, like folding to the flop bet??

Agree with John on the flop.

At these stakes to go for a re-raise and stack off pre, you could be good. HUDs and 15/15(20) sample is not enough and AF post flop irrelevant? With my bad hat on: to suggest getting the money in pre, maybe?

With my good hat on: JJ are an over pair to play to the board. The price you call the 3bet pre, 31c to set mine still isn't looking good. So to cover/effective needs $3.10 for 10-1, I'm looking for more implied odds ($4.50 deep).

I don't know how my devil stacks off pre and the angel says - stop do you want to see a Jack or A/K/Q.
