As I suggested, checking to the villain is not necessarily the optimum play. That's only my opinion. If you check to him, you should be planning
on the check raise. A pot sized bet from him may mean he has something or mean he is responding to your check. Depends on his aggression factor. The implied odds are there to call. But a reraise tells
you where you are.
If you bet first, with a pot sized raise and he shoves... easy fold 90% of the time. (His image/your image, etc.) Unless you feel lucky.
That's for a cash game. In a tourney, if, as you say, you both have 100BB, same answer. Except I'm definitely not calling his shove in a tourney. (OK, some of you have played with me and doubt this. But this analysis doesn't take tilt into account. )
What could he have? Most people don't min bet JJ+ or AK/AQ. Hell, most people don't min bet. Is that the table norm? Is this guy a mouse? Is he a LAG? What's his history? And in the CO, chances are his range is not quite as wide as a button range. He is somewhat unlikely to have KT, but it's possible. He could have AT. (If so, you will get slaughtered if the K shows up) Or he could have a smaller PP, say 88, hoping to get you out of there, hoping for a 10. The thing is, you could be ahead already. Or already in deep trouble. My vote is for finding out which.
