      I think it's a fold. You'll never know where you stand vs all of these very strong ranges on ANY kind of flop.

      ship or fold spot imo :D

      i also feel that a fold is slightly better.

      I think fold seems weak (especially since you´re not in heads up pot) and like either SB/BU/UTG+2 has worse Ax hand). If you think BU is light then shove should be fine- you at least all 5 cards and don´t have to c/f flop 2/3 of times. I would most of the times call (without any history and reads) to play postflop. You don´t have to get always on Axx, Kxx boards and can make your decisions based at CO aggression and other player actions. With AQ and worse hands I would likely folded.

      best regards,

      would also like veriz opinion. :D

      i think i can't call because... it's going to be really tough. like you said, we shouldn't have to always ship Axx and Kxx, so...

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Fold it, SB flat may be a solid hand there and even a trap. The only options here are Shove with the dead money in the pot or just fold. We choose fold.

      Best Regards.

      Turn: ($42.24) 7 :heart: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      River: ($42.24) 4 :diamond: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      Final Pot: $42.24
