      UTG+1 wins $3.87


      Both pretty tight, just making sure there is no way of a call here?

      Hello joeldowey123,

      Nah, I wouldn't Call it vs such a shove either. Nice hand and good fold! We might sometimes discuss about 3betting or not although Calling is fine.

      Best regards.

      I called thsi time, because in my other JJ hand that you evaluated, you said that against tighter players its okay to call and see a flop IP, which is what i was trying this time. ended up working out i suppose.

      Yep. Only reason why I would more often consider raising here is that he is doing 3xBB. :) But definitely Calling is likely the safest play. As you even see in this case, they got very strong hands both. And with raising you would just isolate yourself against better hands.
