Default Two Tens facing an open shove (Stars 100k)

This happened about a week ago. I'm just getting around to posting it now so I don't recall exact stack sizes/details. But this is close enough:

Nightly Stars 100k tourny, like 970 started, 40-45 players remain. Blinds are either 750/1500 or 1k/2k. I have 80k and am 7th in chips.

I just got moved to this table like 3 hands ago. I have almost everyone on my table covered.

I'm in the CO w/T [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]T [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. UTG folds. UTG+1 shoves for 68k. ????? No reads...haven't seen him before.

What do I do here? If I call and win, I'm the chip leader by a good margin. If I call and lose I'm on the road to busto. If I fold I'm still in v good shape but will feel like a [censored].

??

I'd say dont risk it, only because your in good shape and that type of move could be anything. Your probably ahead but the chance that your not + the overcards he could have makes it too risky IMO.

i can see villian doing this with a small pair
most players pushing that have over 15BB usually have a low to medium pair

so i dont mind a call here

I he raises to 8K, I shove to make use of the FE. But here to cold call an all-in for most of my stack, I am only happy seeing 99 or less so I fold here most of the time.

I don't play many donkaments. Is this what we usually see by an open push by an unknown with a decent stack? If this was early in the tourny I'd likely turbo-call that [censored]. But this is with 40ish players left. I'm not sure what to make of it.

It's not 99 as much as it is JJ and it's AK more than anything else IMO.

I find this more often a big, non-A, pocket pair more often than it is a small PP.

Yep. This is JJ/AK so often. Scared to play a flop.
