      Hero wins with a pair of jacks(J J).

      Villain raises with 45BB. I don't wanna call since he's not deep enough. I don't wanna fold either. So I choose a raise/fold if someone pushes on the top and a raise/call against the small stack.
      BB fold and MP2 4bet. I feel committed and push.
      Do you think it's the optimal line for such a hand?
