      Since BB is no way going to fold to your push we can calculate your equity as follows:

      $0.4 + $0.8 + ($1.2+$0.65) // Your remaining Stack
      $3.05:$1.45
      2.1:1
      = 32% Equity needed to be Break-Even.

      Now only against Aces you are a 8% underdog.
      Plus I do not believe that Button got something really good with his ministack.

      Against Kings you are break even and against everything else, you are +EV.

      Pushing here is profitable so well played!

      hi ya gerv. thank you for your insightful reply. After i reviewed my hands after the session i was in two minds as to whether or not this was a good move as according to SSS you meant to fold after more than raise.

      No-no, you have to read it as follows:

      UTG+2 opens for 4BB, Mp2 RRaises to 12BB, Hero is CO with A:hK.

      Then in this situation you should fold if you are playing basic SSS ;)

      If you openraise from UTG and there are 2 raises BEHIND you, then you should do it according to the Stack:raise ratio ;)
