Default Destroy me.

In my quest to improve some aspects of my game I've been producing some jems like this one. I guess I just need the public humiliation to stop doing this, so please flame away.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t150 (4 handed) converter

Hero (t1570)
UTG (t3005)
Button (t2545)
SB (t880)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 4[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">SB raises to t400</font>, Hero calls t250.

Flop: (t800) 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t480 (All-In)</font>, Hero calls t480.

How can you possibly call this raise preflop and then even think about folding on this board?

While not great, I don't think this is a horrible play.

He is doing a stop'n'go with paired board. There is a pretty decent chance your hand is good here.

But fold this preflop and concentrate on being the raiser and not the caller.

I agree, You can't fold on that flop. And I agree again: Fold or raise all in preflop.
He wont fold to a raise often, but with a standard player You will be ahead preflop most of the times, so put him all in while You're ahead.

I actually think this is fine.

If you reraise preflop I believe you probably have less folding equity than hoping he misses and checks.

It's borderline between all three options for me, but I don't think your line was bad and it was possibly the best.
