Should I have called this?
I posted the hand history below but in general.
30$ deep stack tourney, I have 8200 chips
I am dealt Jh Jc, I raise to 240 with one limper behind
one caller and limper fills
flop: 6c 9c 10h
I bet 600
next player calls
limper goes over the top all in for 4700
Is this a good fold? I almost always fold in these situations, early in a tourney when my m>20, but I don't know if it is the right play.
One factor in folding here was that I did have a player behind with an equal chip stack as me to worry about. But, to be honest, I am not sure I make this call even if it was heads up.
Obviously, I am behind to a set, 9-10 and 7-8 OR racing against a flush draw, over cards or a middle pair with a straight draw (but not over pair). On the other hand, A-10 and A-K (and worse) are possibilities too. I imagine I am beat about 40% of the time, racing 40% and ahead 20%. Does that sound right to you?
Just wondering what you guys would do. And more importantly, in your experience what hands do you see make this type of play? Would hands I am ahead of typically make this play or would they check raise to 1200 or smooth call rather than check raise all-in? Assuming that the player is not a complete lag moron.
Also, if I had QQ+ rather than Jacks would that change your recommendations of how to play the hand?
I run into this situation at least once a tournament and not sure if the fold is the optimal play in the long run.
I apologize for the lengthy post.
