      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J:club: , J:spade:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $2,00, hero should?



      MP1 comes from Germany and hero was suspicious that MP1 to be sss-player (stats, however, indicated that MP1 did not have to be necessiarly sss-player). Hero had no reads on MP1.

      Re-raise $6 is more than half your stack, push all in.

      Rather small sample size but still a fair one, looks like he would probably play a bit off the chart from time to time, plus he raises (according to chart) 99+, AQ+ which gives you 50% equity, it is likely that he raises looser as well. These facts together with the fold equity you create when pushing here makes it a profitable move.

      P.S. The fact that he is from germany should in no way be put into consideration in the decision wether to play or not :) Country of origin is completly irrelevant in my book.
