      SB wins 189.28 BB


      All guys unknown totally.

      Is push ok? I was only afraid of CO having something, but he doesnt really have nuts so often. If other guys call I think it is +EV because of so much dead money.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Why are we considering the overbet shove here versus just a regular 3-bet size? Did you choose this because of the amount of non 100 BB stacks?

      Well I would need to 3bet around 25BB which makes me committed to call push, so I pushed myself to have higher fold equity (maybe it looks weaker?)

      Also they were all fish (under 100BB) and they could call even TJs if they feel lucky.

      IF all are fish it gets better but our hand is not doing 100% great unless they call a lot of garbage. The value will come from the FE we generate but as you said it may not be much because our raise looks weaker.

      For example:

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 48.99% 45.19% 3.80% 22+, ATs+, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, ATo+, KQo
      MP3 51.01% 47.21% 3.80% AdQs
