UTG (t2735)

Thinking ahead, shouldn't a good BB shove with any two cards after your call? And Jh 9h isn't really a hand you could call that shove, is it?

Then again a good BB would just fold against the button shove and own the bubble some more, so IDK.

Have you (who have responded) taken these things into consideration? Or are you just assuming BB sucks and will call and check down? That is admittedly the most likely scenario..

But what if BB is a good player?

I agree with Fungahz. Furthermore, the BB has a big stack and he is doing this move a lot of time ...

I don't like calling here unless BB is a passive idiot. If he's good, he's shoving like Ax, K4s+
