One more hand from the tournament.

Villain_7 had been playing fairly tight, but his raise felt weak to me, as his stack was too short to really do anything but shove. He showed that he had K-Q of clubs when he folded.

Was I right to shove against him, or should I have folded or flat-called?

Hey christxof

With villain raising from late position and only having 11bb's this is a great spot for us with our Jacks. The correct play here is to re-raise our opponent all in.

Given that our opponent is a tight player if it just so happens that he has JJ beat with his 11 bb stack then it's a cooler and we are never going to get away from the hand.

With JJ in this spot we should be very comfortable getting it in versus any 10 - 20 bb stack.

Nice hand sir , cheers, Chris.
