      Button is a fish. Getting minraised when the pot is this big by such a player isn't very pleasant. He could have A8, 88, or an overpair himself (in that case there are 2 overpairs lower than mine and 3 that are higher). Should I have layed this hand down, or did I make a correct decision by pushing?

      Button may be a fish, but for now, he is just unknown and that's it.
      Just ask yourself, what can you beat ?
      A8, K8, 99 or TT and an (over)agressively played OESD.
      What hands beat you ?
      QQ+, A6, K6, 88 and 66.

      These are in opinion the only possible hands a loose unknown villain can have, with QQ+ being quit likely. My guess is he got QQ.
      I'm not sure whether it's wise to risk your entire stack on an overpair, even shorthanded. You don't even have fold equity.

      Hi Timor83!

      It's well played imo because his range can also contain T9, 98, 97, 77, 22-55. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!

      Can you please tell me why those would be in his handrange to call a reraise preflop with ? even 22-77 don't have set value for 50 $ ...
      He only played 12 hands, so any reads are unreliable ...

      The funny thing is he had neither of those hands (56o, ffs). But good to know I played it well :)

      Oh, and he was a fish because I saw him make very stupid plays earlier.
