I am a little tight that deep stacked. I would have done it with AA to QQ, with AK suited or possibly AQ if I am feeling my oats. AQ and I have a good record. I prefer seeing cards or be the aggressor.
In bounty tournaments calling range are strongly influenzed by the relation between the size of the bounty and the amount of chips at stake. So without having this information, the question can not be answered. But in a non bounty tournament JTo would be very far from being a call against a HJ jam for 11BB. So the bounty would have to be really juicy for that to change.
