      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: Isolating him is perfectly fine and even if we knew he shoves light (which he may) I would still fold KQo.

      For example:

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 34.24% 32.83% 1.42% KsQd
      MP3 65.76% 64.34% 1.42% 77+, AJs+, KQs, AJo+ (7.5%)

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 49.89% 47.62% 2.26% KsQd
      MP3 50.11% 47.85% 2.26% 66+, A2s+, K6s+, Q8s+, J8s+, T8s+, A7o+, K9o+, QTo+, JTo (25% of hands)

      So as you can see we can't do much and after factoring in the rake we need 48-49% pot odds.

      I would say that against limp/shoves like this, without info (like villain is really fishY) we can only call the top part of our range like AK/JJ+.
