If you were the guy who first responded to the all in would you call or go all in with 10 10?

Hi again Etienne!

Were I the guy with TT here, it would take a pretty WIDE shove range by the UTG player to make me play, but if I did choose to play YES I would go all in.

With the size of the pot, and the size of the stacks behind the TT player, the last thing I would want is to allow highly speculative hands to come along which might them semi bluff me off the pot after I have called. While the blinds might wake up with RACE HANDS a decent amount of the time, a shove gets most of those to fold out, so it is relatively rare I see a hand behind call that crushes me.

Obviously, your KK is a perfectly good hand to call his shove on, but I do not see anything "wrong" with him shoving TT over that jam as long as UTG is quite wide.

Hope it helps.
