      I'm a bit shocked about the results :D

      But I'm still not sure if on long run this would be a profitable game. I wasn't sure: shove or fold, because it's ZOOM and you don't have this much information about the villains (their mental state), only their stats.

      Hi.

      I think the decision is close here. Firstly I think we can agree that MP is rarely super strong here (AA/KK). If not he would have raised smaller most of the time. Open raising to 35bb is just dumb with the preflop nuts.

      What about BU? What is he shoving here? If we are only putting him on pocket pairs, then AK is an underdog vs that range and you should be folding. Add some AQ/AJ/KQ combos and you are probably good to go in terms of stacking off here.

      As I said earlier, it's close, and I'm not too sure what the best play is given the stack size. I would definitely stack off with QQ here though, but AK is weaker IMO.
