27 man SnG, I shove for just over 10BB, guy calls with J6 off. So he was a 55 BB stack, that's just a dumb call. 3rd hand I played.... Of course he hits the jack...

Hi Ov3rsight!

A player with that large of a stack in a s&g is normally going to be from a calling station that got lucky. The way I attack those types of players is to wait until I have a made hand and then value bet them to death.
Shoving into them, even at 10BB is going to turn the game into bingo and I would want to do whatever I could to avoid it. I'll even wait until I'm down to 4-5BB to shove in this type of case, to be sure that I have a made hand.

Good luck at the tables.
