I think my 3-bet is a bit on the smaller size. I'm calling off SB (15BB) and BB (18)...Probably should have gone for 70k-80k.
Anyways, we both check flop. Hit the J on the turn. What type of sizing do you like here?

We are on the bubble. This may seem trivial, i.e. an easy snap call. But, what is SB shoving here with 35bb? It really looks like a steal, however shouldn't the SB be just a bit concerned about the BB (hero)? Hero is 4/28.

I am fairly confident this is a standard shove, but let me know if I am wrong being so close to the money.

Winning Reg with 16.5bb opens 3.5bb on the Cutoff
Hero JJ 12.5bb (8/18) on button and shove.
What is villain opening 3.5x? I have to assume he has a fairly wide range. Let's say 25% and obviously I am way ahead of his range here. Or since it is so large (3.5x) is it more like top 10%? Either way JJ is still ahead. However, since both our stacks are relatively small he really doesn't have much fold equity so he is calling off a high percentage of the time. So he probably calls with >1010 and >AJo. So I am essentially flipping. If I fold, I can wait and easily cash or pick a future spots to pick up chips against smaller stacks without my tournament life on the line. Or, is the previous option (folding) just way to nitty, especially in a turbo?
Any thoughts on the above I appreciate.
