For people not familiar with the dynamics in bounty tournaments it probably look pretty insane to pile in 30 bigs with KJs, when there is a jam and a call ahead. But the guy calling is probably just trying to win the bounty of the all-in player, and since he covered me as well, he is also likely to call with worse, especially since he was a fish. So crazy as it might sound, KJs is actually a jam for value in this spot. Bit of a sweat on the flop, but justice was restored by the river :D

I like how each of you were ahead in a different street.

I like even more that your being ahead was the river.

On the topic of bounty hunting can I ask how you feel about this one? $44 PKO, it didn't pay off but do you think call or shove here? Guessing you wouldn't fold.

I think, that even without bounties this is a perfectly fine spot to rejam rather than try to play ATo out of position. As you say, of course we are never folding. With the bounties in play, rejamming is even better, because if he call, his bounty is essentially like a big extra ante in the pot.

If the starting stack was 5.000 chips, his bounty was worth at least 1.250 chips, which really improve your pot odds, when he only start with 2.000. You were risking 1.944 to win a pot of 4.308 + 1.250 for the bounty, meaning you break even, if you have just 35% equity, when he call. Against his exact hand you only had 27%, but AJ-AK is not his entire range, and a lot of the time he fold to your jam.
