Default JJ, early-mid tourney Party 20+2

No real reads on villian as I was recently moved.

I have JJ and 3300 chips.
blinds 25/50

2 folds , villian raises to 150 , 2 folds

I make it 400 to go. Everyone folds back to villian who calls.

Flop comes A58 all clubs. I have the J of clubs. Pot is 875. Villian has about 1250 left.

Villian checks to me.

What's your move and why?

My bad, forgot to include he checked.

The blinds folded so it's just me and him.

Well then it would help to know his action seeing as how it is first...

Bet 500 - if he had a hand he'd have to protect it unless he had the Kc or Qc w/ it (like AK w/ Kc) - if he pushes back then I'm hard pressed to think of a hand I'm ahead of or can outdraw and have to lay it down (if you've seen him pop w/ air then you could factor that in, I assume w/o reads that he hasn't been out of line). Can't see checking as I'm vulnerable and have to call any reasonable turn bet he'd lead with - betting allows me to set the price and may take the pot down right there. If he calls I'll look to check it down.

If he pushes back, its only ~750 more for me to call. The pot is 750+875+500=2125 so i'm getting 2.8 to 1. With 10 outs I can probably assume are good... I think I pretty much have to call as I'm getting about .8 of that 2.8 as overlay. Nevermind that he could be bluffing (though it seems unlikey I guess, then again its a 20+2).

I agree with your line though, that's probably what I would do, maybe 600 instead but whatever.

just realized I didn't calculate pot odds correctly, forgot his 500 to match my bet. Just strengthens the argument for calling anyway.

So I figure I might as well go ahead and push right away.

You end up pushing? I'm guessing he tried to play for set value or has an AQ, AJ.

That may be the widest range ever gators. "He either has a pair or AQ+.

Can I get a flop line from anyone? I'm saying that I think my best move is a big bet like pushing, or I suppose maybe 900. What would you do here?

I'll post what I did on the flop, and results later.
