Yuck. "JJ is not the nuts, JJ is not the nuts, JJ is not the nuts."

I don't like a re-raise, simply because a three-bet will make your tummy hurt. Shorter it's an easy push, taller you can re-raise and see what happens, but in this case, I think I call and take a flop.

If I flop an overpair I probably come over the top of many c-bets. If he's on a bigger overpair, well that's life. But I overplay pockets way too much.

Neither is KK or QQ or AK. You don't win tournaments by sitting around waiting for the nuts. A double up is huge here.

I love taking a flop in this spot. He is in a real crappy position, and he will likely be C-betting any flop. When he bets the flop I'm probably only giving up if its ace high. Even king or queen high I may still be willing to go broke.

I agree completely, but facing a raise JJ is significantly worse than KK, and more than a little worse than QQ. If we put the EP raiser on a pretty tight range, there are eighteen combinations that have us crushed (AA-QQ), and twenty-four with which we are a coin-flip (AK-AQ), and a few more that we have crushed (AJ, 99-TT). Compare these numbers with QQ, KK and AK.

Just my two cents, but I think JJ is a whole lot closer to TT than QQ.

I'd bet 2400 and fold if MP3 or SB pushes, but call if MP1 pushes.

Why call MP1's push?

OP, just wanted to compliment you on posting two hands that are really tough, IMHO.

Because he's not checking any reasonable hand into 3 players after one has already checked. If he check raised all in on us, I'd expect to see a lower pair quite often.
