    Should I have allin-ed the re-raise? Please let me know if I did anything else not optimal. umbup:

    Hi wcdz! With JJ from UTG, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper (raise to 90). I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, so that it helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basially turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I want to avoid. I then get re-raised to 315 by the SB. Since I'm in position and it's early in the tourney, I'm going to call here IN position and re-evaluate after the flop. I would then make standard value bets on every street. A standard bet against one opp is 1/2 pot, so that is what I will bet until I'm pot-committed, then I'll shove. With this being early in the tourney, I don't need to shove here. If I wanted to re-raise, I would make a standard one to 3X the previous bet (945) and this bet would not pot-commit me. I only want to shove early if I'm pot-committed, as I can still fold and have playability in my stack. Also, while JJ is a made hand, it is very vulnerable as there are three overcards that the opp could have that can beat me if they pair the board. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
