      Party, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BTN: $1.65 (41.3 bb)
      Hero (BB): $4.99 (124.8 bb)
      CO: $7.56 (189 bb)
      SB: $5.46 (136.5 bb)
      MP: $1.46 (36.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      MP calls $0.04, CO raises to $0.12, BTN calls $0.12, SB folds, Hero raises to $1, MP raises to $1.46 and is all-in, CO folds, BTN raises to $1.65 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.65

      I failed to take the stack sizes into consideration here.
      Should I have just shoved right off?

      As it is, the $0.65 call is easy since the pot odds are v good.
      Note that this is NOT a Fast-Fold table

      Flop: ($4.90) Q T 4 (3 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: ($4.90) J (3 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($4.90) 5 (3 players, 2 are all-in)

      $4.90 pot ($0.24 rake)
      Final Board: Q T 4 J 5
      BTN mucked T J and lost (-$1.65 net)
      Hero showed A K and won $4.66 ($3.01 net)
      MP mucked A J and lost (-$1.46 net)

      Hi Vorpal,

      Preflop: Considering the stack size of opponents I don't really mind raising smaller to give either of them a chance to make a bigger mistake and shoving lighter. But either way you go it's fine overall with our hand and 2 short stacks.
