your situation is tough. it could be a while before you get another decent all in hand. but with 2 players all in before you can act, i would fold. if you had QQ, KK, AA its a definite all in. JJ is a maybe. i was expecting those players to have AJ or better, pockets or something... but its a definite fold with 2 other players. more players means less chance for you no matter what their hands are.

Thanks for your reply loucetios i get what your saying about the two before me but people were going allin with crazy hands and i thought to my self i may not get a better hand as i only had 5bb and antes were 2000 i felt even better when i see they both had aces in their hands but gutted when the ace came on the flop.
but i get what you are saying and i most probably would of folded if i had more chips.
thankyou.

Hi joker,

For some reason the hand isn't showing in the replayer for me, so I can't see stack sizes of the other players. But with only 5bb's and no where near the ticket bubble yet, I think it's hard to find a fold for me personally. If both all ins were tight players or putting big stacks at risk, I could find one. But as described with them making crazy all ins, I am not releasing 99 here.

Satellite considerations don't really come into it, with 76 left and only 25 tickets we are going to have to get some chips to get there for sure, so I don't think we can pass up a reasonable chance to get to 17bb's. It's not the most exciting proposition with 2 all ins, but vs. potential crazy ranges we can't pass it imo being this short.
