Flop Jc 10c 4s. Im first position so i raise. he goes all in. i am only worried about one hand. JJ. he had it. Does anyone know the odds of him having that?
How to lay it down? You click the box that says [fold]. Would I have clicked it? Yes. That close to the bubble (<15), lowest set on the board, tournament life at state - yes. You sure didn't have the nuts. A good hand for sure, but you also admit some concern over the JJ (and as someone else mentioned, the 10,10) or even a flush draw.
I can find better places to bet the farm, unless making the bubble was of no concern, but that's just me ...
The players who have little problem betting or calling the 'bet the farm' action with marginal hands must keep the boxes packed. From what I see online, a lot of them are moving regularly.
