SITUATION: This hand comes from the recent Sky Poker UKPC, a fantastic event that was run full-ring instead of the six-max format last time.
We haven’t been able to get anything going all day, but we’re still sat with 52k from a starting stack of 40k when we get dealt Jacks in MP.
We raise to 2k and are three-bet from the button by a decent, but not particularly aggressive player, to 5k. We call and see the T♠-6♦-6♠ flop. We check-call a bet of 6,000 and the T♣ comes on the turn. The action slows and goes check- check. The 9♥ comes on the turn and we check again to be met with a bet of just over half pot to 13,000. What should we do and why?
