I can't identify or guess what's my oponent hand especially preflop if he's got a premium hand or just some suited connectors in the late tournament with the massive stacks and the blinds rarely to call especially raises. Got some pressure of the situation and you cannot afford to wait pocket Ace before you push a play.Ex. Yesterday I play MTT maybe 1 hour I am folding until I got pocket JJ then I raise double in early position and the button check raise 4bet. Well what Im gonna do, I go ALL IN my stack is 50K and 20BB and he 70K stack, just try to steal that raise but suddenly he snap call with KK and bust me out. You are card dead for an hours then you got pocket JJ, wouldn't you push?

mmmmmm this is a interesting one. Usually 3 betting into an opponent with just 20BB is provocative lol if you're in the money, then ill just call to see the flop. just check and watch how aggressive he gets. It's usual to see villain get aggressive during early stage of the money to knock people out to increase pay out. And JJ is just as equal as 10 10. Don't rely your whole tournament on that hand.

I don't know what it means when "the button check raise 4bet" but in general, JJ is gonna be going in w/ 20bb. Just a cooler.

re: Poker & Late Tournament
In this situation, and after being card dead for more than 1 hour, i will also push all in against a monster stack, that's absolutely normal, and that's why luck is a part of the game.
At my last FTOPS event , with an entry of 1K$, i was card dead for more than 3 hours, but i have managed to be ITM, so patience is always a key in those tournament even you got QQ or JJ.

I can find a fold depending on villain. If they're getting really aggro when your in EP. You've been card dead for an hour and his stack is not that much bigger than yours. That means that for him to get involved is a big risk to his stack.
With an image of being tight I don't think I'm happy getting it in pre. Readless I'm never folding and calling it a cooler. I'd call and see a flop if it's just a reasonable sized 3 bet though.
