      Stacks:
      UTG ($7.82) 196bb
      CO ($15.35) 384bb
      BTN ($1.73) 43bb
      HERO (SB) ($4.02) 101bb
      BB ($4.11) 103bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 5 players) HERO is SB K:diamond: A:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.04, 2 folds, HERO raises to $0.20, 1 fold, UTG raises to $0.72, HERO?

      Villain: 27/16, AF: 1.3, SD: 44, 186h

      This probably was not the first time I isolated the villain. However, I don`t think he`s making a move. My only options are to shove or fold. I often expect such limp-raisers show up with QQ+, so I rather fold.

      Hi.

      Shove is definitely not an option.

      Our options here are to call or fold. We are OOP and his 3bet size is really big so I think folding is fine. If he made it 40 or 50 cents I would probably call here.

      Thanks.

      Shove is an option, but a wrong one :P

      I agree, would also call smaller 3-bet.

      Does the same goes with QQ? Against QQ+, AK our equity still is not enough.

      Nope, why would we want to shove when he is almost never folding?

      People 5bet shove AK preflop cos they may win 20BB when the opponent is 4betting as a bluff.

      In this case vs a limp/reraise from UTG, I would estimate his range to be a strong value range 80-90%+ of the time. So I don't see any point in shoving.

      QQ is similar to AK. I would play it cautiously.
