      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      Hero (BB): $2 (100 bb)
      MP3: $8.53 (426.5 bb)
      CO: $1.89 (94.5 bb)
      SB: $2.63 (131.5 bb)
      MP2: $4.66 (233 bb)
      BTN: $0.52 (26 bb)
      MP1: $0.80 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K K
      MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.02, BTN folds, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.16, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.14, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.38) 3 J 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.28, MP2 raises to $4.50 and is all-in, Hero ???

      Villain has only 5 hands so far, however he has shoved on the flop 3 times. Two folds and suited connectors that hit.
      He has so much in his range I beat:
      If I give him the range:
      66+,33,AsQs,AsTs,QsTs,AJo,KJo,QJo,JTo,J6o,J3o
      I'm a 2:1 favourite -- more or less.
      My break-even equity is 44%

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      As you may understand this isn't a spot where we could say that go broke or don't go broke. Against unknown I'd most likely even consider folding since we haven't invested much. But with your reads as you said he has done that several times already I would Call and include a lot of Jx/draws into his range.

      Best Regards.

      I came very close to folding, but I realized that if I was ALREADY beat, he could call me (or even check behind hoping I'll hit) to the river then shove.

      It's fine, just picking the safest option.
