When he flats my 3Bet pre flop, I put him on a hand like AQ - A10, KQs, KJs, 99 - 66.
From my limited experience, at this stake level hands like AA, AKs, AK, KK, AQs, QQ, JJ, 10's are often 4Betting all-in.
I check raise all-in on the flop as it seems a decent board for JJ, but in hindsight I'm worried I've exposed myself.
I'm only on a pair, and I could have his range completely wrong.
Although this is a micro stakes cash game, I've busted out more expensive tournaments in similar scenarios.
It's definitely one of the leaks in my game that could be fixed, but I'm curious to hear how else this hand could have been played?
I'm surprised he has committed with top pair, my play surely screams set or an over pair? I'm not sure I have any all-in bluffs here.
That said, it's a mistake I've also made many times during the learning process - committing with top pair on a similar board.
He must have put me on AKs or AQs, but surely my large 3Bet would throw some premium pairs in my range?
I'm trying to commit him on the flop, or make him fold. I'm obviously aware that any A, K, Q on the turn could bluff me off the hand, or simply beat me.
With that in mind, could I have played this better? Have I done the right thing, or do I need to be less scared of the turn and river?
