7 players, blinds 800/1600 with 160 ante. Hero UTG with 60,000...Button 40,000...SB 30,000. I act first UTG with JT hearts and raise to 4000. Button and SB call. Flop is Ah, Jd, 5h. SB checks, I check, Button bets 9,000, SB jams for 26,000. I decide to overjam allin. Thoughts on the hand in general and especially flop action.
I think, you played the hand very well. I like your decision to check the flop, because with your specific hand I dont think, betting accomplish anything. They will rarely fold a better hand, and they will also rarely call with worse. In top of that there are no turn cards, that are really bad for you. Even an offsuit K or Q is not a disaster, since it will give you a gutshot draw. When the action explodes behind you, I think, you have to stick it in. There are a few scenarios, that are really bad for you like being against someone with 55 and someone with KQ of hearts. But overall this is going to be a profitable stack off for sure.
My thought was check-raise, probably check-jam on the flop. It just got really weird with the small blind check-jamming before I had the chance and eliminating all fold equity. And 55/AJ were both very reasonable hands to make that play with. Small blind had AT and button ended up folding AQ or so they said. The ten kinda sucked because I lost outs, but I did hit the heart on the turn.
