SB all in for 70bb
Is this a call or a fold? Easy fold with one player left to act
Unless SB is a nit, I am calling here. You are only behind to QQ+, which is 1,5% of hands, and most people are rejamming way wider than that. The guy behind is a further incentive to get it in, because if he had QQ+, he would not just have called. So against him you are always ahead, and he will either fold leaving dead chips in the pot, or call which allow you to potentially triple your stack.
You should call here. As Fundiver points out, you're only behind if the shover has QQ, KK, or AA. It's unlikely he has KK or AA because his range is likely capped. This means that if he had a premium hand like AA, he would usually reraise smaller to get action instead of shove 70bb and try to knock everybody out of the pot.
Since you're also getting good odds, I would definitely call with the JJ.
That's right with this hand and thus the stack you just kolit! And here is to accept whether push from BB already need to think! If he is not a maniac then I think he should understand that you have a good hand and his push can be easily reset!
I think that although the small blind is shoving potentially wide, and very few hands are held that are ahead of yours, it’s still a fairly reckless move to call.
I agree that the big stack is pressuring you, but if you call, I think then you bend to his pressure, the big stack isn’t stealing blinds often enough for in this manner. Going out on JJ is dignified, but is being beaten and busted by hands like Q8s, K2s etc?
