      I think even QQ might not be good in that spot without reads and i'd fold it. JJ is easy fold.

      I agree with undercover KK is the minimum hand to push here. There's a bet, raise, 3 bet and 4bet, at least one of them must have KK+.

      why did you reraise? I dont see the point in that. Because with jacks you have more then 50% chance to flop overcards, you dont want to overplay them. Just played them ep: raise to 2$ call button, bb raises to 4.50$, 2.50$ to call on a 50$ stacks, easy call for setvalue, and taadaa, flop KJ5. Sucked his aces all the way in. Its just a pair of jacks, dont overrate them. Think of it as hitting tptk with aj, its not the best feeling in the word, is it? Anyway, succes at the tables, and if you folded: good fold!

      JJ is often ahead even against very tight shorthanded CO raising range. Plus he's in possition.

      For me it's an easy fold. SB is commited and CO both are commited to the hand and at best you play against two overcards (flip), but typically CO has a monster after he reraises you.
