      Hi.

      With around 60bb or less this is a pretty easy broke spot here.
      With 80-100bb it gets tougher. Let's analyze a few things here

      1) Board: It's really hard for him to rep much. Assuming he raises AK/AQ/AA/KK preflop, I think we can consider AJ good here. Also, we have Ace of heart, which blocks off AhXh type of hands which are flipping against us.

      2) Opponent: We only know he's a limper. This basically makes him likelier to be passive. I'm also not sure how often he slowplays (underplays) his strong hands like AK/AA. Given that he did not limp/reraise, it's safe to assume he doesnt have AA/KK/AK about 90% of the time. Maybe he may have AQ?

      He only reps 33/A3 here IMO, and if he does it with draws (large sizing may mean that he's likelier to be on a draw perhaps?) and some worse AX then it's an easy all-in here.

      Considering all things, I think point 1 outweighs point 2, so I prefer going all-in.

      Thanks.
