I was playing in a 10+1 sng on stars today when this hand came up. Its only been running for two orbits and I have no read on the player. I am in the BB with A/Jo.

Utg limps, Utg+1 limps, LP limps, SB calls, I check.

I bet out 150 and the UTG raises to 300. Everyone else folds. What do you do? UTG has me covered by about 200 chips. All responses welcome.

UTG would have to be pretty adamant that a lot of people would be coming along to call with JTs. probably open raise TT and above; I would probably make him for KQo; an OESD would be worth a raise on the flop; he may be trying to buy a turn card.

I'd hope he has KJ /images/graemlins/wink.gif

My opinion only but I think it's a fold. I have a couple of reasons that include the fact that it is so early in the tournament with a low buy in. UTG could quite conceiveably have limped with almost anything. A JT in this situation is not unbelieveable. Actually J3s or T3s isn't outside the realm of possibility. I think many people make the error early in these lower buy in SNG's of overestimating TPTK.
