$50 NL HE 6-max: Flat JJ in SB against probable steal attempt
Villian Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF):
Another hand I butchered (sigh...). Following the discussion of flatting strong-ish hands in the small blind against Villain's who will likely fold to a 3bet, I decided to flat here. 3bet is 6.4%, fold to 3bet is 70% over 1.7K hands. Steals at 25%, positionally aware.
I'm sorry to admit, though, that I feel lost in this situation OOP postflop - I'm used to 3betting pf and, if called, representing a strong hand and leading out and evaluating where I stand based on Villain's response. I took an extremely passive line here postflop, so I have no good feel for how strong her hand is, other than the fact that she fired 3 barrels.
I'm assuming I should have raised the flop or the turn and evaluated the response at that point? If I raised either, and she re-raised, would that mean a T, overcards, sd, or QQ+? Her range is pretty wide here - the 3 barrel says she's got something, but I'm not comfortable if I'm ahead of the range or not. I got very uncomfortable at the river and wasn't sure whether to call or shove.
So, instead of being a chickens**t passive dweeb, how should I be planning to play this hand postflop?
