      Hey Winner,

      It's one of those spots where it's tough to really say for sure which looks weaker..

      If shoving gets a snap call from TT, AQ, then it's a great play but if min5bet gets a spew from AQ, A7s type hands it's also great.. there are arguments for both and unfrotunately I cannot say for sure which is better against this opponent.

      If you are not known for min5betting and then folding (be able to min5bet fold) just ship.. Usually min5bets look stronger in my experience and generate more folds but there will always be exceptions in such a spot.

      We never can't 5bet-fold because of huge dead money in the pot, so it is just a standart shoving in almost 100 bb stacks.
