      Party Poker $11 USD Buy-in No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t20/t40 Blinds - 6 players

      SB: t2200 55 BBs
      BB: t1700 42.50 BBs
      Hero (UTG): t2160 54 BBs
      MP: t2060 51.50 BBs
      CO: t1940 48.50 BBs
      BTN: t1940 48.50 BBs

      Pre Flop: (t0) Hero is UTG with Js Jh
      Hero raises to t120, MP calls t120, CO raises to t600, 5 folds

      Should I have shoved?
      CO seems to be fish, with -40% ROI, but his vpip/pfr is ~20/20

      i like the fold, the raise is pretty huge and committing and i dont think u ever get it in vs TT or worse even vs 20/20 guy

      I'd fine a fold here because:

      • Your unlikely to be ahead of his 3-betting range, at best you'll get it in against AQ or AK and still be flipping.
      • If you assume that you have a decent edge on your opponents, you will be able to find better spots later in the tournament (which you will miss out on if you lose a flip or get it in against QQ+).
