      Hello newsat,

      Depends what kind of opponent are we against, who is raising us, if he is some kind of with nitty stats and short-stacking then I'd rather just fold. But if you seen him going broke with a lot worse hands and playing like maniac then it ain't wrong to go broke here. But yeah, like on NL5 AK+, QQ+ and even sometimes TT+, depending on the opponent, can't say exact range. If you want to just avoid variance then pick tighter one.

      Best regards.
