      Hello samlar,

      Preflop: I'd isolate the UTG limper here.

      As played
      Since we haven't invested much and we aren't getting that great equity against his shoving range, for example this one, if he has some TP or 2pair type of hand:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand

      Player 1: 54,394% 53,939% 0,909% 45,152% AQs, Q9s, AQo, Q9o
      Player 2: 45,606% 45,152% 0,909% 53,939% KcQc

      Here we ain't getting that great equity, therefore I'd prefer to just fold. We only have invested like $0.25 and that like nothing but have to Call such a huge shove, of course his shove doesn't make sense but often we are behind when we Calling here, without any reads. We are just gambling. Just curious what did he have then?

      Best regards.

      Interesting decision from him to shove, likely was too scared of FD.
