You're sitting 9th with 9 left in a 45 man and have an M of 4.8. Whilst this isn't an ideal spot with a raiser in front of you (they should have been shipping that stack BTW) you can no longer wait for the ideal spot,or anything even like it really. With 3 other stacks similar to mine I'm not being needlessly reckless here,but JJ is plenty good enough to be shipping in this spot. Having a player in later position wake up with one of the 3 hands we're concerned about (AA,KK and QQ) is just unlucky.

The fact that the open-raiser folded their hand here tells you the story as to your decision---if they were stronger than your JJ they come along here. So at worst you're flipping as a slight favorite had it been you two heads-up here without the QQ hand. My guess is that you were in better shape than that.

Played this 100% correctly IMO. Run better next time.
