      I don't think your push here is bad, since you would have to reraise to almost half of your stack anyway, but I personally would make a normal raise because you have a bigger stack.

      But when I look better the MP1 only has 7,05$, so push is good.

      SSS reraising chart (gold section) tells us that you can push AKo here against 8% pfr, but only AKs against 6% pfr so it's close :P If you have a read that he's a good shortstack player then I think I would fold.

      Hi alejandrosh,

      mp1 looks like an sss standard player and his range should be 99+aqs+aqo+ against which you have 48% equity plus the chance that someone behinds you has a monster easy muck. Just use equilator and make yourself a little chart against sss players.

      @ysessa: thanks for the response, I will make a chart against SSS , I was using the chart fongie talked about however, AKo is good for 8% but not for 6% and he had 7 ?(

      @fongie: I have the chart, but not the article, I think i'll become gold soon to read the article. (if i don't have to move down X( )

      @burek: Against unknown is an easy push and I would be very happy to get it in preflop.
