      Hello Ghartman,

      Well, why don't you raise in first place? What hands do you raise only then?:D Standard spot to raise first in. :) But as played well, it really comes up to the opponent and what kind of range we expect him to shove. If rather wider range then Calling is definitely fine.

      Best Regards.
