Default $55: JJ

Is this preflop call OK? I was strongly considering checkraising his weak flop bet, but thought there were too many players left to act, what do you think of this?

UTG+1 (t1390)
UTG+2 (t475)
MP1 (t1140)
MP2 (t975)
MP3 (t1060)
CO (t960)
Button (t1470)
SB (t1055)

Preflop: Hero is BB with J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].

Yes, I can live with this. I don't think you can bet anymore here, there're too many runners. I'd be quite tempted to call and see what happens, but it depends on the player - I'd need to know he was a moron, and not just trying to milk something.

I can't fold to that bet on the flop. It's a retarded bet. If he has the Q or an overpair, he's a fool for pricing in every draw known to man. Sure I guess he could have QQ? But 50 is too little of a bet to fold to at this point. I call and reevaluate on the turn, maybe lead out if an unthreatening card falls, and fold to a raise.

Could that giant sucking sound be the button trying to vacuum up all your chips, a little at a time? Like with Ac, Kc?

I might raise to 150-200 here preflop. Thoughts?

He asks if the preflop call is ok. I'm thinking a reraise is better.

I am saying I prefer a call to a reraise because playing out of position sucks and raising to 200 will put you at a a more difficult postflop decision.
