      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9:heart: , 9:spade:
      3 folds, MP1 raises to $1,00, MP2 calls $1,00, MP3 calls $1,00, ...


      Ok. So here's the thing. Is it thinkable shoving it in a situation like this?
      Cause if I shove it, consider only one of them calls. I need equity of 43% (4.65/10.88).

      If I put my opponent on a raising-range of 77+, AQ+, which is rather tight, I get 44% equity.

      I know basic strategy doesn't allow a push here. But is it thinkable?


      I got two of these hands today.. I folded both, but they got me wondering :P

      Firstly you have only 17 hands on MP1 so i would fold.

      Secondly, wow interesting hand!

      Thirdly, with more hands i actually might well push here but i would be a lot happier if first in raiser was MP2 rather than MP1 and i had an MP pfr stat which was a bit higher or the same as overall pfr.

      In conclusion I assume 2 folds and i really like that deadmoney in this spot, i am squeezing often with enough hands on villains. Can't say for sure though ;) It all depends on my mood!

      I assume 40% equity and a coinflip +/- 5% against villains range as well as two folds worth of deadmoney.


      P.s. On my highest limit i would like to play TT+ AQ+ in this spot. I don't like 99 so much unless I'm 150% comfortable with the limit i am on.
