      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      8 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG felle_ ($48.50)
      UTG+1 KzinAce ($10.00)
      MP1 TywerAAA ($21.05)
      MP2 Hero ($54.48)

      BTN nivek77222 ($11.30)
      SB brahmanshiva ($40.97)
      BB valenok_666 ($22.15)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 8 players) Hero is MP2 A:diamond: K:diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $2, 1 fold, nivek77222 goes all-in $11.30, 1 fold, valenok_666 calls $10.80, Hero folds


      Final Pot: $24.85

      Normally I call this to a SSS, but with that overcall fold is fine?

      I'm not sure, but I think that given the small stack of the other caller, I'll shove. Except if you know for sure he is really tight.

      I mean, if he is calling QQ+, you still have 37% equity (you need 36% equity to make the call):

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 37.556% 30.80% 06.75% 61752 13536.00 { AdKd }
      Hand 1: 24.552% 17.80% 06.75% 35682 13536.00 { TT+, AKs, AKo }
      Hand 2: 37.892% 37.89% 00.00% 75960 0.00 { QQ+ }

      But if he is calling tight here (KK+), then you are almost dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 05.221% 05.08% 00.14% 3852 108.00 { AdKd }
      Hand 1: 10.346% 10.20% 00.14% 7740 108.00 { TT+, AKs, AKo }
      Hand 2: 84.433% 84.43% 00.00% 64044 0.00 { KK+ }

      Actually, since your equity is never that big, I kind of like the fold preflop. Except if you know for sure he is loose :)

      Fold < Call < Shove.
      Take the deadmoney, you are way ahead of both their ranges.

      If you decide to continue with your hand, you should shove.
      Folding is fine without reads on valenok.
