I cold call UTG raise with JJ.
No notes on the player.
When the K comes on the river and he bets, I decide to call as it is to nitty to fold for only 1 overcard.
Same on the river.
Showdown will be posted later.

When you're determining if you should call or not, base your call based upon (1) your opponent's percieved UTG open-raising range, (2) post-flop c-betting range and (3) your pot odds. It looks like he is betting 1/2 pot on both streets so you don't need that much equity to call; however, also consider the difference between a single and double barrel and what that means. Overall, I think your hand was played fine if villain isn't too nitty. If he is, his UTG open-raising range will be heavily weighted with Kx hands.

*** showdown ***

Hero shows a pair of Jacks [JsJh]
master_card shows a pair of Kings [QhKs] and wins


Thanks for the feedback Alton. Yes I need to think more on players opening ranges...
Problem with Unibet is that I cannot take notes on players in the client.
Not a lot of nitty players at 4NL...
