171 paid, ~320 remaining
Avg stack ~50k
Villian (Rock) (UTG) ~$58k
Hero (UTG+1) ~$66k (3rd in chips at table)
Hero table image solid, balanced, but active last half hour due to mini-rush
Villian has never raised UTG in 5 hours playing with him. Has shown down position-appropriate hands all night and has bet them textbook standard.
Villian raises to $6k
Hero has JJ and goes all in for $66k (~30 more BB).
Is this a bad spot to be getting it in against a very tight opponent? My M is 11 but I got over 30 bbs and we're not ITM yet. However, there was the lure of a 60+BB stack in a tourney with a steep structure close to the bubble.
I put him on AQo+, AQs+, JJ+, which JJ is close to a 55/45 underdog against. We become slight favorites if we widen his opening range just slightly (99+,KQs,ATs+AQo+). Is this simply a bad spot to flip for stacks?
Would we have been better 3-betting to $12k-$15k and folding if he shoves pre? If he flats the 3-bet and the flop is all undercards, we have a tough decision if/when he ships.
What is the optimal line in this particular spot? Folding pre crossed my mind, too, which is why I ask. I snap-shoved, but felt spewey afterward, like I could have found a better spot. Got under 60 live tourneys experience so I am still a noob. Appreciate any insight here
Thank you all for your advice in advance.
