Is this ridiculous? What is an appropriate range here?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t600 (3 handed) converter (http://www.selachian.com/tools/bisonconverter/hhconverter.cgi)

BB (t2434)
Hero (t6108)
SB (t4958)

Preflop: Hero is Button with J/images/graemlins/spade.gif, T/images/graemlins/diamond.gif.

I am anxious to hear the answer to this question. I have having big problems with my game in this same stage of a game.

Could not be more standard.

At the $11's this is a very strong "depends".

Button -&gt; greater chance to raise.
Big Stack -&gt; greater chance to raise.
BB, or SB defends a lot -&gt; lesser chance to raise.
BB, or SB is a maniac -&gt; lesser chance to raise.

How have the 3-handed pots been getting played? Raise wins? Anyone pushing? Did the BB just recover from a timy stack?

These (and possibly more) questions will determine if I call, raise, or fold JTo here. (Note: call is going to be rare).

Well, I just realized that in my original post I had the stack sizes of the SB and BB reversed. However, the good thing about pushing here is that you are almost never dominated even when called. The problem is that the BB will likely call with a wide range because the BB is such a big portion of his stack.

That said, I'm probably pushing T9o here most of the time, and 98s. With reversed stack sizes I push 98o and 87s.
