Come on, man. You can't really think anyone in their right mind is calling in that spot. I think you asked a dumb question without actually thinking about what you trying to ask, then tried to justify it with "Well, maybe it is in some people's calling range." I refuse to believe that you think people will call off with j4 in that spot.
Meh, if he believes spiders have 7 legs then it's possible.

I could be wrong nutz, but it never ceases to amaze me how shallow guys will limp (not in blinds) on the actual bubble just to fold to any aggression pf.
you could be right but it's still a bad spot in general against such a short stack. (i prolly would like it more if you had a hand like 109 or 87 which has a bit more equity preflop)EDIT:if you want some numbers, you can use this site http://www.fpppro.co...-calculator.php

if you think it is plus ev based off how much he could fold, jam. but just fold i see no reason to risk this much with such a weak hand

I just re-checked this, and the answer to the original question was "yes, you are an idiot MSP"...."and that answer has nothing to do with the poker"

Thx. It would have been unreasonable to expect J4 to be in anyone's calling range, but you never know...
Well said!
