Default $55 - JJ PF Trap

This hand played out exactly how I wanted. Even so, I'm beginning to think I should just take the low variance route here and open push. Thoughts? SB is pretty frisky.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t200 (6 handed) converter

Hero (t1730)
MP (t990)
CO (t2810)
Button (t2220)
SB (t1030)
BB (t1220)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
Hero calls t200, <font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, SB Pushes, Hero calls very quickly.

I'd do the low variance thing, or be tricky with a minraise. I really don't want to get a push on a bad flop, or let the blinds hit something on that flop.

Since you thought SB was going to come at you, I like the way you played it. I'll happily go against A8 from the SB here. I think pushing is probably lower variance, but my intuition is that it's also substantially smaller $ profit unless all of the other players at your table are high caliber donkeys.
