      this is my first hand in a table full of unknowns. yay!

      Everest - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $4.50
      SB: $4.05
      Hero (BB): $5.00
      UTG: $6.10
      CO: $1.87

      SB posts SB $0.03, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.08) Hero has K:spade: A:spade:

      fold, CO raises to $0.18, fold, fold, Hero raises to $5.00 and is all-in...

      my thoughts:
      - i am oop
      - i am unknown
      - opponent is short stack and could easily call with worse Ax, or maybe even be just a fish and call with anything
      - may create a funny image for the few very first hands

      Hello Tomaloc,

      I would most likely still make a normal raise there and invite him come even along with worse Ax hands which usually wouldn't be calling vs your shove.

      But of course your play ain't wrong either, we are raising like $0,60 and he would have just $1,20 on the flop left and which would be anyways an all-in.

      Best Regards.
