Who calls this?

i'd probably call. if 83s is a limping hand, J8s could be a 40x push hand. we frankly have little idea what the hell this guy has, but AJs is pretty good and he could show up with a very wide range.

Me, cause I'm pissed that tool called all-in with the 8 and 3 of spades.

Then I think a second and fold. Granted he's proven himself to be an idiot, but I have no idea what hand this guy has. Maybe we're dominating, or maybe we're dominated, maybe it's a coinflip. All I know is that my stealing game is good enough to dig me out of this hole and I don't want to throw away the chance to play out the tournament on this hand. The blinds are stil 25/50 and you have almost 800 chips, about 100 more than I usually have at this level. Anybody think AJ is too good to throw away against this guy?
