      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      MP2: $9.06 (90.6 bb)
      MP3: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $20.39 (203.9 bb)
      BTN: $10.92 (109.2 bb)
      SB: $24.78 (247.8 bb)
      BB: $2.46 (24.6 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $11.94 (119.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A K
      Hero raises to $0.40, MP2 calls $0.40, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.40, SB folds, BB raises to $2.46 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.06, MP2 calls $2.06, BTN folds

      Flop: ($7.83) 5 K K (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Hero bets $3.72, MP2 raises to $6.60, Hero calls $2.88

      Turn: ($21.03) 4 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($21.03) Q (3 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $21.03 pot ($1.03 rake)
      Final Board: 5 K K 4 Q
      MP2 showed J T and lost (-$9.06 net)
      BB showed J T and lost (-$2.46 net)
      Hero showed A K and won $20 ($10.94 net)

      Ok, so let me explain. Firstly, my question here is about preflop. Is shoving ourselves with one player (fish) behind better than calling (other) fish's AI?

      Information: BB is fish on tilt. When BB shoves I'm like cool, smooth call, assuming the fish in MP will clearly fold. Instead, he comes along for the ride, which puts me in a tough spot postflop.

      1. Would shoving ourselves with 1 fish behind would have been better?
      2. Postflop: if we don't hit on dry board vs the loose 31/6 fish do we just give up? Or go broke?

      Hello M1rCea,

      1. Rather just shove yourself and don't drag along such fishes. You don't want them to come along. Only with hands like KK/AA I would consider that.

      2. Yes, we are planning to just give up if we don't hit.

      Best Regards.
