Learn the game every day, is making decisions like that, a long of the days we know who to play in several spots against several players, we see and note some plays in diferent tables and we do the move with that info that capture playing against they for a long time, maybe 30 minutes or more, but we see a padron and make moves with that infos, good or bad we do and in the end we just have the sure that the move we make is the right on, and be happy in long run with the plays.

As a place just in the money is as good as 1st place, one should only call with real monsters in a DoN. Additional chips don't have the value they would have in a normal tourney, with a top heavy payout structure. In a DoN it is better to shove than to call a shove. So a call with JJ would be borderline at best, unless one has a huge stack, and doesn't mind losing the hand.
Pretty standard plays there. But don't get me wrong, standard = good It's standard for a reason.
I would've probably folded the JJ even if there wasn't a caller in front. The caller just made your decision easier. Pre flop shoves in DoN's are rarely non-premium hands. And JJ doesn't beat many premium hands xD

Iwas ready to call before the other shove cause the first one was very low stack it would not had a to bad effect on mine but the other one wasa to big stack and i also suspect a premium hand from him.

hmm you ca go no wrong all in with JJ if you playing against a player who is loose as he will always call with worse cards and you can profit from that so good luck and have fun at the tables hope you make a lot of money and always all in with QQ+ against nit do not push JJ if you have stats he is tight as you will lose money like this, anyway me back to some reading cant play poker anymore as i just bused my roll recently lol!

Depending on what stage of the game you are, your stack size and who is reraising, it is not a bad move folding such hands. Huge stacks or chip leaders, can play a bigger variety of hands like that, but there are times that they hit, one good hand after another, thus the big stack In a small freeroll though i would have called with JJ.
