      Hello!

      The deepstacked BU 3B shoved or open showed three times in a row before that hand, and a couple of times before, so I was basically waiting the QQ-AA, AK hand on that table to call.. Is it ok to play like that against him? I mean, what else can I do? Should I fold AK, QQ and call only KK-AA?


      BU: 63/29/15,6/77 (VPIP/PFR/3B/H)

      With this read I'd definitely call AK.
      AQ and AJ are a call too imo, there's a good chance he's shoving any2 or at least something like a 50%+ range.
      Having said that it's probably even +EV to get it in with AT-A8 or even some worse Ax, but we have to keep in mind that there's an openraiser as well.
      Which range you can call exactly is hard to say because it's based on assumptions about how much this guy shoves.
      Personally I'd probably call something like {A9+, KQ, 88+}.

      Yes, the openraiser was a shortstack, so I am anyways against the maniac.. If the openraiser was a reasonable fullstack, I would even consider folding...
