This was a very early hand in a $0.55 turbo tournament.

With all the hands behind me, folding pocket Jacks was the right move, correct?

Hi Christxof,

I haven't watched past the point that you've folded. I think you're ok calling here. If only to set mine or continue on a flop with an overpair.

We are still really deep stacked. Generally you want 15x the size of the call to set mine profitably. So in this case 15 x 180 = 2700 which we have. In this instance we also have a hand that can win without improving and with lots of people in the pot our implied odds improve even further.

This is a chance of the original raiser 4betting but i think with this much action they will probably only do so with a strong hand and we can put in the 180 and fold confidently if the pot is 4 or 5 bet back around.

Good Luck
