      Hi DrRaab,

      Preflop: why not reraise preflop versus the fish? Playing inbetween two guys with AKo is not that great.

      Postflop: As played, givens villains really small stack I wouldn't fold either.

      yeah i did think about that option, what size would you say to reraise with vs a min raise?
      75c?

      We can even make $1 which would allow us to ship most flops (if both call). Both guys look fishy and fishy guys love to call 4bets.

      As you say we could ship most flops. I know it is going to be a long answer with many variables but for example what would be the flops we couldn't ship?

      Low paired boards such as 544
      Medium connect such as 895

      As this would hit their ranges pretty well?

      As you say we could shove most flops would it be ok to shove with backdoor flush, high card that misses me such as Q or J with low cards? Or would it be with and A or K on the flop, however thats not really most flops?

      First, what do you think their ranges would be if you think they hit a 544 board nicely?

      In my opinion their ranges can have a lot of broadways and of course pairs.

      So those boards are just as good for us especially if Ax doesn't fold (or we can let one of them bet for us).

      with the min raise by sb pre- on 544 board i would say medium pairs from 77-TT and possibly high aces such as AJ AQ even splitting with AK.

      If SB bet both flop and turn on a blank i would put them onto medium pair, if they bet flop, checked turn then it would be more Ax and broadways.

      Against the other villain, who seemed looser they could have a lot more connected/one gappers up to about ten and probably weaker broadways due to the odds they were getting to call

      Don't forget that if we make it $1 preflop and both call we have a ~$3 pot with only $2.78 effective stack (with SB) and less with the other.
