7 hours in, pretty card dead lately but hanging in. Effective stack 108k (me) at 200-1k-2k. I open JJ in ep to 8k over 1 limper, aggressive player in SB who has been running over the table 3bets to 31k, folds to me, I jam 108k. Is this a spew? Better to flat? Standard jam?

    Seems a little deep to jam, I think. You're deep enough to call. Likely not folding an undercard board, though.

    789r flop (I was doomed!). Should mention 87 players left of 203. 30 make the money, $25k for 1st place.

    Having position on a player that likes to fire away is something you want. I wouldn't blow him out too quickly.

    Call pf, call off on that flop is better. Got it.

    Definitely call pf. Then raise jam on this flop. Probably calling Kxx and Qxx board.

    I think its a fold versus call spot. SB really three bets hard here, almost 4x your bet. I would fold pre-flop unless I had seen SB 3 bet hard too often in the past. This hand is a tough spot and hard hand to play. If you fold you still have 50 BB. Why play such a tough hand for so many chips with JJ at this point in the tourney? Be patient and wait for a better spot. Short stacks at the table with be shoving 12 BB with any two face cards in the next hand.

    I think of all the advice you got in this thread the guy directly on top of me give you the absolute worst.

    If you flat, you have a pot sized bet left. I am not sure flatting is better than pushing or folding. This guy 3b big to commit you. You showed some strength raising a limper and he 3b OOP. I doubt he is bluffing here. Question is more whether he has TT/AQ/AK enough as opposed to higher pps. He should 3b smaller to induce a call or shove with QQ+, but some live players may not think that way.

    Monst that’s a bit harsh! Not just the worst but - “Absolute worst”. Ha! One thing I can assure you about my opinion is that it is sincere. It’s easy to say fold JJ here in an on line forum. I understand that to do so in this tourney would be tough. I stand behind my opinion four months later. The true problem here is that it’s a clear mistake to four bet jam pre with JJ. So, then which of the two options fold/call is best? I hate hate hate to call here with JJ. A flat call basically turns my hand face up. If I flat pre and we go to the flop, I then have just over a pot sized bet and I will likely be facing a flop bet where I would need to fold or shove. I started the hand with 54 BB and if I fold I still have 50 BB. Monst why is a fold so bad here? I play an aggressive game but I like to pick spots.
