Would You Have Made This Call
OK, before you answer, please read the scenario details as I believe they're important for the proper answer. I'm looking for kind of a strategy confirmation as much as opinions of who would call with Villain's hand in this situation
I was fairly new to this table, 12 hands I think. We were getting close to the bubble in a $2.20 100 Max FR Deep Regular. I had been holding my own and enjoying play getting callers when I had Monsters and they held up, with mostly real easy fold decisions other times when I did have money in the pot and the rest were no-brainers for folding. I'd been hanging around the top dozen in chips for quite a bit of the tourney with the lead at times after a couple of good double ups.
So, round before this one when I was SB, it was folded to the button who called and I made a raise to 3bbs with JQ Suited, kind of a semi bluff trying to seal his blind, he 4-bet to 10 bb, Button folded and not having much info on him, it was either shove or fold, so I folded. Next hand, I'm on the Button, AQ O, folded to me and I did the same, raise to 3bb and villain again 4 bet, but this time he shoved. Maybe I should have called then, but I folded.
So, next hand, he stole the blinds from the button with a shove after 2 callers before him, nobody called.
He was quiet all the way around the table until I was again in the SB and I was dealt AJ-S. This is the hand below where it turns out I was better than a 65/30 favoourite, and the one I would like opinions on.
