      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, K.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 5 folds, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.23) 2, 6, T (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.18, UTG2 raises to $0.36, Hero raises to $0.65, UTG2 calls $0.21.

      Turn: ($1.45) J (2 players)


      River: ($1.45) 9 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.45.
      Results follow:

      UTG2 shows a flush, ten high(6 8).
      Hero shows high card ace(A K).

      UTG2 wins with a flush, ten high(6 8).
      Hero wins with high card ace(A K).


      The villain was quite very loose and passive here (with 49/8/1.5 in VPIP/PFR/AF).

      With those two overcards and have the initiative on PreFlop play, should it be alright to Call his shove (when he's Short Stack) in this spot?

      Hello anhvusa,

      I wouldn't CB in first place here. Just Check/Fold it. If he is passive then he wont bet anyways without even having any hand. As played Bet/Fold it. :)

      Best Regards.
