      if both players a bit thinking, i would fold.
      I give some one AK and the other one a higher Pocket then yours.
      Iam not believe in AK and TT (where we have 44% EQ)

      against QQ+ and AK we only have 18% EQ (need 33% three way)

      I see BB as a calling station so he creates dead money.

      Well with Jacks, I think you can push here due BB's stats/dead money
      $22.4 / $8.45
      = 27% you need

      I think its marginal but it can be pushed.
      Folding is also okay but then pay attention to their holecards when they go to the Showdown.

      i get a bit different eq we need then you. (33% was just for simplification of course we need less)

      but i didnt think bb creates dead money. when he calls the sd he also calls your push. i think someone is trapping you.
      sb could directly 3-bet 11$ so you would be ai, but with his smaller bet you have to push and then he could 5-bet.
      the bb could also have a monster smaller hands he would fold or sometimes 4-bet against sb.

      give both a range and then we will see we cant call.

      I dont like to get into these spots with JJ, we are hoping for a flip. I wouldn't call the BB dead money he can also easily have QQ+ so a fold here is safe you have a good remaining stack, pot odds are not that great etc.
