This post is dead-on.
EP's range seems to be getting lost in your post and thought-process. I realize EP ultimately folded in-hand but we did not know that prior to our decision to iso-raise.
I like flatting V2's jam because JJ's strength has shriveled up a bit in this spot. We are facing a EP open (generally strong to begin with), then we have an MP flatter, and then a shover. Plus we have a active vills behind. All of this adds up to high degree of uncertainty (and variance), so I would like to flat-call with JJ and keep control of the pot size.
