Probably muck in 2 seconds flat, you have almost 40xbb and you're risking 75% of your stack on what could be either an outrageous bluff (unlikely) or you're up against KK or AA and the guy is trying to make it look like a huge overbet steal to disguise his hand. You could look at it as he's trying to get chips at this late bubble stage and is pressurising the short stacks but I'd still wait for a better spot.

Depends.. Is he steaming? Did he suffer any badbeats? Is he a tight or a loose or a complete idiot player?

But in mostly cases i would fold. JJ aint that strong IMO

I would call, because winning the hand would set you up nicely for going deep.

Its a pain in the arse situation, because going out on the bubble is pretty shitty anytime. But I think you have to think longer term and make the call.

saying that for me he always has AK/AQ, and he always catches the flop

That's a good point hdog, and after thinking it over and considering the low buy in it has swayed my opinion slightly. I still however do not like knowing that I'll be more than likely 52/48 at best in most cases.

I think I would fold it, coast into the money and If that chance came up again after I had my buy in stake back I would make the call.
