The table was quite soft and fairly predictable, although one or two of the players seemed dangerous and another seemed to be at least a little bit creative. Blinds are 25-50, and most players are moderately close to their starting stacks, although the woman on my left has been steadily hosing off chips.
I raise to 150 second UTG with black jacks. Hoser on my left calls, as does the big blind.
The flop is Kh Jh 8c. I bet 500 (a hair over the size of the pot), hoser folds, and the big blind calls.
The turn is the 4h. The BB thinks for a few seconds and bets 800. I have a total of 1100 left. I think for a little bit and decide that she might do that on a king or a pair with a heart and push my chips in. She calls, and turns over 82h. The river fails to pair the board, and I get to pay about $25/minute for my tournament.
The argument for folding the hand on the turn is that the table is extremely soft. Other than that, I don't see any way to let it go.
