      If I am in late position and UTG opens up with a raise and someone in MP calls that raise and I am on the Button with JJ - should I fold or go all-in there ?
      Is there a difference between a raise and a call of that raise before me , and raise and a reraise before me?

      Thanks for your help!

      A raise and a reraise is a big red flag for me, but a raise and a call is a different story especially if the raiser is loose. Even vs a UTG raise JJ isn't that good though and a fold isn't too weak but I usually would shove this spot. The call is usually just extra dead money with hands as weak as like QT offsuit. Shoving is no mistake that's for sure.

      So:

      Opponent 1 raises $1 , Opponent 2 reraises to $4 , Hero (on BTN) folds JJ

      Opponent 1 raises $1, Opponent 2 calls $1, Hero goes all-in with JJ

      Cheers!
