      Hello Alficor1,

      Preflop: I'd likely raise it bigger here, since there is also a limper, therefore I'd make it ~$1,80.

      As played
      Flop: Actually we can Call there(Call the shove), just for the given reason that we should get pretty decent equity, because there is already a lot of dead money in the pot. We need only 25% equity to get a proper Call.

      And for example against this range:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 47,174% 34,051% 26,245% 39,704% AKs, AKo
      Player 2: 52,826% 39,704% 26,245% 34,051% JJ, AJs+, AJo+

      We get it easily, but for example, lets say a bit tighter range:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 26,955% 7,157% 39,596% 53,247% AKs, AKo
      Player 2: 73,045% 53,247% 39,596% 7,157% JJ, AKs, AJs, AKo, AJo

      We still get the equity. But of course against only nuts-range:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 11,592% 11,423% 0,337% 88,240% AKs, AKo
      Player 2: 88,408% 88,240% 0,337% 11,423% JJ, AJs, AJo

      We don't get the equity, but I'd rather take the average one from all 3, since do you really think that he is just going to Check/Fold AQ or AK in this case?

      And also you could even consider just pushing yourself after the small donk. :)

      Best regards.
