Hey Tommy nolimit

JJ six handed is a monster hand and with just 16 big blinds in our stack there is only one move to make, which is to go all in. It's best for us to shove our pocket Jack's all in rather than any other option.
Villain only has 12 big blinds himself so when he raises I'm pretty sure that he's going to go ahead and go with the hand a large percentage of the time. It's very rare to spot a player with less than 12 big blinds that will raise and then fold to any retaliation, so there is no need to get tricky and 3bet our hand, just straight up shove it in his face.

Villain should be shoving or folding his hand. Raise calling is the worst line he could have taken. Better luck next time, cheers, Chris.

you didn't do anything wrong, in fact you played it great. you got in the chips very good. just remember that poker is not about trying not to lose the minimum, it's about making good decisions.
