      Same villian as last time, 54/15 passive.

      Don't really see him shoving a Q here? more likely a draw, some kind of pocket pair. Can we find a call here?

      Thanks!

      I probably call here for the same reasons you give. His shove looks like he's doing it for fold equity, with some kind of flush draw/overcard combo/random high cards bluff. Often they show up with Qx though like Q9/Q7s and have no idea how badly they've played their hand.

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Against such a station it ain't a huge mistake. More often he ain't shipping it with Qx but may ship with a lot of draws/weaker pairs/PPs. So overall both lines are acceptable. :) Either you fold or Call.

      But keep in mind, don't raise 4xBB when you have small stacks on blinds. 3x works perfectly fine. Gives you more room to steal with wider range as well. Unless the BTN is somewhat aggressive player.

      Best regards.

      Thank you!

      and he shoved with 77, so yeah, our line was right :)
