Villian is 41/12/2 over 60 hands, not that it counts for much. This is only a few hands after the top up period. Do we always see AA-KK here ?

pokerstars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t150 (9 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)
UTG+1 (t4810)
MP1 (t11235)
MP2 (t4685)
MP3 (t4675)
CO (t5470)
Button (t5990)
SB (t7940)
Hero (t9570)
UTG (t3165)
Preflop: Hero is BB with J

UTG calls t150, 1 fold, MP1 calls t150, 5 folds, Hero raises to t900, UTG raises to t3165

Whats our range to call this ?

What's the rest of the table like? Limp-raising at a loose/passive table is kind of silly, and he could be doing this with smaller pairs/AQ+ with the assumption that you could be making a play. Vise-versa on an aggressive table obv.

We've got a nice stack but adding to it and getting rid of an aggressive player seated right behind us is a plus. So is acquiring an even bigger stacks in these rebuys (sat or cash, tb?). Do we always see AA/KK here? Not against a 40/12/2, I'd say.

We're getting ~1.9 on our money if MP folds, and I think his range could vary, but even against

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 40.081% 39.87% 00.21% 114702624 596634.00 { JJ }
Hand 1: 59.919% 59.71% 00.21% 171771180 596634.00 { KK+, AKs, AKo }

we're getting more than enough to call (1.5:1 dog).

This isn't one of those limp reraises that smells strongly of AA or KK to me. Granted, it could be, but it could really easily be loads of smaller pairs.

Here's the mental monologue of the guy very often:

"Ooh, i got me a paira 6s.. I'm gonna limp and try to make a set, take all these fishes chips. Okay somebody called. Oh what the [censored], this jerk just raised the [censored] out of it and now I'm not getting odds to look for my damn set. Ooooh that just gets me so goshdarned mad I don't know whattodo! Well [censored], he can't know I got a hand as good as a pair.. I'm aheada AK and he might fold... I'M GOIN AWRRRRIN"

i fold in this situation for a couple reasons. a passive call from utg and then a massive re raise usually indicats a monster. also, from the description i don't really know what types of players these guys/girls are. is UTG aggressive, loose?? even then i still like the fold a little better than the all in bc even with AK you are only up 55/45 or even less. plus he could be holding QQ/KK/AA, which would be devastating to your chip stack

I think combuboom hit the nail on the head, and in a marvelously entertaining way as well. The villian is quite a short stack for a rebuy tourney, even tho his M is not bad yet, he will have looked at his Q and will be thinking he needs to make some kind of move pretty soon, and quite often any pocket pair will play like this, and even AK, AQ, i would call this everytime, now if his stack were 1.5 * bigger than it is, i think we could happily lay it down, but this has to be a call.

i always assume something is up when the passive player immediately turns into an aggressive player
