$1/$2 NL. The game is playing typically passive, and fairly loose.
Playing 8 handed, I start the hand with about $250 and open UTG+1 with JJ to $8. Guy with $350 on my immediate left calls. A player in LP goes all in for $31, the SB, with a $500 stack, calls $31. It folds around to me, I call the $31, and the player on my left calls. Pot is about $115 after the rake. Flop is [8s][7c][5c]. SB checks. I bet $40, the other 2 players fold.
Please give me your thoughts on preflop as well as the flop.
Interesting side note: The game was not actually $1/$2 NL but $1/$2 $2-$100 spread limit because AZ state law bans "no limit" betting. Does this change what the best play is preflop, given that the most we can 4-bet to is $131? Does it change how we play the hand in any other ways?
Thanks for your help!
