I learned to play poker by asking and pontificating on specific hand histories posted on other forums and talked about with friends. For any but the most basic decisions, poker is often clouded by so much metagame as to make a single "right answer" impossible. I am for poker discussion here as opposed to the area51 poker proposal, so I ask my question here.
Example post to get an idea: I am playing a no-limit cash game of Texas holdem with blinds of $1-$2 at a 7 handed table where everyone is about 100 big blinds deep. An aggressive losing player opens to 12 on the button, and it folds to me with JJ in the big blind. Ive been here for about an hour, but quiet, and havent played with this gentleman before. Is 3-betting or calling better, and why? What is the correct plan for dangerous flops?
