Original pusher is a fool but how should I proceed when this occurs? No read on villain

I can't imagine not pushing to isolate here with JJ when someone you know is "a fool" raises in front of you.

On the other hand, I probably fold when it gets back to me, whether or not UTG+1 come along. I'm not that comfortable with the numbers though.

1) Push at your first action point.

2) Since you didn't, fold at your second action point, and then go shoot yourself (see #1)

I would have pushed in the first place. Of course, that would have meant I would probably have gone broke since AA or KK was lurking behind me.

I think it is clear enough you are dominated and you don't have odds to call.
