      Hi Paul5151

      Calling doesn't seem very wrong, since you are getting good pot odds - 9:1
      However, it is a perfect spot to push. Minraising often means weakness, especially from MP 2
      So given the amount of deadmoney in the pot (coldcallers are often weak) the push is very profitable here.

      As played, your postflop play is fine.
