Hi Ads,

This is a tough spot. It as you say comes down to ranges.

In answer to the question yes I think we can fold JJ here to a 12BB shove from a tight player UTG.

Giving the opponent a range of 99+,AJs+,AQo+ which is about 5% we have 50.65% equity. We have 1BB invested already so technially this would be a profitable call versus this range, but there is very little profit in it and losing 12BBs really impacts our stack.

I think this is a begrudging fold. And we are looking for spots where we have a bigger equity edge.
