$100 NLHE Full Ring: JJ - 3bet cold call OOP
This hand has been bugging me since last night because it seems raising has no value, folding has less and calling really sucks lol.
Villain 1 - Competant but no amazing regular. Plays quite laggy and we have a bit of history. I raise UTG, 3 way flop, I bet, villain raises I fold. 2nd hand I raise MP, 3 way flop villain C/r OOP Q-high dry flop, I min-3bet, villain folds. Final hand, I raise AJs MP, villain calls OTB, SB calls, I bet J8x flop, villain min-raises, SB folds, I call. I then C/c 2 streets on final board of J8xJx. Villain shows T9s.
Villain 2 - Fish reg, ptr has him at like -10BB/100 over 55k. Stupidly wide raising range, hates folding to 3bets and has a love of spazzing out in 3bet pots.
Other player in hand I don't recognise so is probably fish.

I call flop basically to setmine because I'm not super happy about 4bet squeezing JJ AIPF. It feels like a breakeven play. Without the randomer cold calling I am probably just folding preflop.
The flop is such a tease, I'm either miles ahead or miles behind so I just check and wait to see what happens. I figure bet and raise behind me = easy fold and hopefully it checks all the way around. I call the bet because it's so small.
When the king comes I remember deciding I'm done with the hand, even with history v's villain. Either villain has QQ/KK/AA or their AK has hit. I figure them for a stronger 3bet range than usual due to it being v's UTG open even though UTG is fish.
Then river is a standard value bet imo. It's soooo common to see this line when someone bets flop, hits turn and checks then bets large on the river to make it look like they're stealing and I'm not bluff-catching enough here.
Anyhoo that's my take on the hand and it's bloody annoying lol. Can any of you give me a eureka moment?
