Default Fold JJ?

Naturally, I am here to second-guess myself.

Alas, I didn't capture the hand, so the bets are guesses. The table was playing T$10-T$20 at the time, and we all had about T$1500 or so.

This was early in the tournament, so I had effectively no data on the other players. I was dealt JJ on the button. CO-2 raised $200, CO re-raised $600, I call. CO-2 raises all-in. CO folds.

I called and faced AA. Needless to say, my hand did not improve.

It seems to me like it was just about as likely I might have faced TT or AKs, dontcha think?

The coda to the story is that I played 2 sng tournaments this morning. One of them I made a huge error that bounced me out (to make it worse, I made it against a trash-talker who then proceeded to rub it in. His handle was "Phill Hell Jr", believe it or not), but then I went and played at a NL side game and took down a monster bigger than the first place in the tourney would have been, so I can't complain too much.

edit: added bets

Wow. That's hard to swallow. But, of course, look at what wound up happening. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

yeah, fold that with quickness. it's a fold even if they're making normal bets, but when one guy raises 10 bb's and the next guy puts 40% of his stack in, it's time to muck. i'd play QQ though.
