      PokerStars - $3.16+$0.34|50/100 NL (9 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: 1,740.00
      UTG: 2,530.00
      MP: 910.00
      CO: 4,190.00
      Hero (BTN): 1,410.00
      SB: 1,850.00

      SB posts SB 50.00, BB posts BB 100.00

      Pre Flop: (150.00) Hero has A:spade: Q:club:

      fold, MP raises to 910.00 and is all-in, CO calls 910.00, Hero raises to 1,410.00 and is all-in, fold, fold, CO calls 500.00

      I chose to go all in because I had thought that the guy who went all in does not have AK or something better. In addition to that the call from the big stack seemed somehow weak.

      Hi xy736m
      This is my first online evaluation for what its worth:

      The initial caller could have a range of 22+ Axs ATo+ K9s+ KTo+ Q9s+ J9s+ T9s and any broadway I missed.
      I think against that range I would call as you are ahead.
      However when the big stack calls he probably is not calling with the same range
      or at least I would not, my range would be 77+ AJs+ AQo+ but as you point out he only calls where I would probably push that range.
      Now if I only called, I am not going to call with rubbish as its going to showdown.
      So what would I just call with?
      AA KK QQ maybe JJ AKs to entice people to the showdown party.


      PS Can someone evaluate my evaluation please.

      Interesting hand and solid reply Mark1790.

      Stats are very crucial to this hand. MP doesn't matter all that much -- unless he's incredibly tight, you're nicely ahead of his range shoving 6 bb from the hijack. For the CO caller though, stats will be crucial. If his VPIP/PFR is 53/6 for instance, it's a very clear shove. If he's playing 9/7 though, he's often trapping and you should fold.

      From my experience ppl play only nuts like that (QQ+). I would not put him on AK. So without any obvious read on CO I would rather fold it. But again, it's micro so everything is possible :)

      CO is pot committed against you. I'd snapfold AQ there.
