      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J:heart: , J:spade:
      UTG2 raises to $2.40 (All-In), 2 folds, Hero calls $2.30 (All-In), CO folds, BU calls $2.40, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $7.25

      - UTG2 (first to act) open pushes. Only seen 5 hands on the guy so my stats aren't really useful. What sort of hand can someone open push from UTG?

      - I used my timebank and thought for a while. Decided the sort of player who pushes UTG is not very strong player and is a) more likely to slowplay monsters than push, b) less patient and less likely to have a dominating hand (QQ+) and c) more likely to overplay something like AT that I have dominated.

      - It was pretty unfortunate that BU called along because that probably indicates him having a monster but that can't really be helped.

      Against those kind of {stupid} players, I easily call with JJ here

      After you have called/went over the top, you cannot foresee events that are happening after you (Eg. BU calls as well)

      Best regards,
