      I posted stats for this hand as well.

      Less than 100 bb deep, can we justify a tight fold there?

      Usually when players do this instant shove its a pair.


      Seat 2: Hero ( $4.43 USD ) - VPIP: 26, PFR: 22, 3B: 11, AF: 2,9, Hands: 27900
      Seat 3: Player3 ( $6.84 USD ) - VPIP: 14, PFR: 14, 3B: 5, AF: 5,5, Hands: 236

      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $7.70 (154 bb)
      Hero (SB): $4.43 (88.6 bb)
      BB: $6.84 (136.8 bb)
      UTG: $4.11 (82.2 bb)
      MP: $6.72 (134.4 bb)
      CO: $18.98 (379.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.85, BB raises to $6.84 and is all-in, MP folds, Hero calls $3.58 and is all-in

      Flop: ($9.06) 5 8 3 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: ($9.06) 7 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($9.06) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $9.06 pot ($0.38 rake)
      Final Board: 5 8 3 7 2
      Hero showed K A and lost (-$4.43 net)
      BB showed Q Q and won $8.68 ($4.25 net)

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: Insta shoving can also mean a hand like AQ/AK that doesn't want to get called if the raise is smaller.

      This question here comes down to the math.

      You get X pot odds and you have Y equity versus a range. Is Y bigger than X? If so we can call.

      The reason I didn't give you the numbers is because this would make a great exercise for you.

      I recommend you calculate X and various Ys and post them here.

      So if I assign him a range of TT+,AQs+,AKo vs my AK i have a 42,8% equity.

      But I need a 43,7% therefore this is unprofitable even if he has AQ in his reshove range which I doubt.

      If I give him a range of TT+,AKs,AKo then Ihave 40,39%
