      When should one 5bet shove vs call and decide on the flop? I had no stats on villain. I decided to only call because of the slight deep stacks.

      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BTN): $8.46 (169.2 bb)
      SB: $1.73 (34.6 bb)
      BB: $3.37 (67.4 bb)
      UTG: $5.90 (118 bb)
      MP: $6.76 (135.2 bb)
      CO: $4 (80 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.15, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 2 folds, MP raises to $1, Hero calls $0.55

      Flop: ($2.07) 6 A J (2 players)
      MP bets $1, Hero folds

      Results:
      $2.07 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 6 A J
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$1 net)
      MP mucked and won $1.98 ($0.98 net)

      Hi.

      Preflop: I don't mind calling here with KK with no history at 135bb stack depth. Shoving is fine too, it's not as though you have >150bb.

      Flop: I think I would call once and expect villain to shut down on the Turn. He could have the occasional air hand, sometimes he just has QQ here and cbets the Flop with that.

      We only need to win 25% of the time to justify the call and I think we can win that much.

      Thanks.
