      As played:

      You should reraise Mp1's hand to 3x his raise so thats $1.5
      But since that is 75% of your stack, put the remaining 25% also in so Go All-in!

      Now you go all-in anyway but going all-in and made him make a choice is much easier ;)

      The other reason is that you still have 4 players to act plus the UTG limper, and with JJ you really only want HU. A BSS player would make a large iso raise here. Click-raise is very weak and you could very well have gotten a multi-pot and be facing A K Q and an underpair, yikes. Push preflop.

      Sorry guys only saw the replies... Now thank you all...

      @Gerv... Will do, will convert them now... And thanks
      @Gerv & davidangel... Well I reread the articles on SSS strategy and will have to make 3x the raise from now on (or all-in depending on stack)...

      @ caltabiano... Thanks I'll push it now.... Good for you to fold, bad for me lol :)

      I play SSS and i would fold JJ in your place 80% of time! Depends who is raiser.

      I mean JJ is nice hand but if opponent is solid bet you will do is flip with AK or even maybe AQ. I think also here in articles they suggest fold.

      Ok this is NL10 where opponent are a bit worse than my limits bit still as i said i fold 80% of cases. Is hard fold but must be done to play profitable i think.

      Basic SHC
      JJ 0-1 raises = raise
      JJ 2 raises = fold
      Basic play is push preflop.
      Again, push preflop
      Maybe a judge will tell you to... push preflop

      according to the chart of the reraise ranges we should reraise with JJ if villian is raising 8% of his hands , against that range Jacks have 56% equity

      the chart may not be that accurate , but in my opinion he has to be really tight to fold jacks here, even if he is playing by the SSS SHC and only raising 99+ AQ+ here, we are still sligthly ahead.

      just push directly nice hand no way to fold jj against an mp1 raiser.
