      Villain been pushing for the last 7 hands. Problem is I'm not sure if it's worth the risk, considering people behind me may hold JJ+/AK (AQ fold most of the times)

      I don´t like shove
      I would prefer calling and then folding to shove unless BB shoves, then you´re pot committed. Players would not fold that point AK or JJ+ so if they wake up stronger hand than yours you´re a t quite bad shape and I doubt someone would isolate shove smt like T9s or A5s since you can also slowplay that spot AA/KK

      Hello vmarqui,

      Basically having 6 opponents behind us, I'd just fold the hand. We never know what they are going to do and either the equity ain't that good:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    63.56%  62.54%   1.03% { AdJh }
      UTG+1  36.44%  35.41%   1.03% { random }

      So therefore a fold from my side. :) On blinds I might consider Calling.

      Best regards.

      Hi, such a donk/maniac is rarely folding there. I would rather fold my AJo and wait a little

      my shoving range against a donk like that would be something like 88+ AQs+ AKo from late and from MP/EP would be TT+, AK.
