Suppose that you're the small blind in the first hand of a spin and go. Blinds are 10/20 and everyone has 500. The button min-raises.
It can feel like you don't have great options when you want to play a hand here.

Calling: You play out of position

Re-Raising Small: You give the button good odds to play against you with position

Jamming: You risk 490 to win 70

Of course, often one of these options is still a definite best way to go. I think with any low pocket pair, for example, the best play is usually just to shove.

What about these hands? I'm very interested how people would most like to play:

(a) KJo

(b) A2s

(c) A9o

(d) T9s

If you feel up to it, pick one or more of them and say what play you would make (folding is fine too, of course!) and why.

(a) KJo > I would fold, I don't good results with this hand

(b) A2s > I would only call, is good enough to see the flop, but not too strong to shove

(c) A9o > I would go all in

(d) T9s > re-raise/ all-in
