      according SSS you need to push.
      2,5:1 or less With every hand you raised with
      2,5(your stack):1,5(your rise)

      you cant call, because you will need push on flop (1.25yours stak 5.60pot)


      I playing in stars ( NL25 too ) and this min rise show a lot strength and plus he is UTG, if his stats tight and no dead money I fink here good to fold. But if vilian unknown plus some dead money need to push

      When sitting in the blinds I push directly when there are 2+ limpers, specially with the decreased stack.

      As played, just stick to basic strategy without the stats... ...KQ, your ratio between stack and raise is 1,67:1 and you need <2,5:1, so you have to push.

      It's important to make a note about what hand he limp/raised with, so you don't push against a possible monster again.

      Hello TinTin369,

      As an Addition: I push here if I have to invest more than 35% of my stack at once preflop so $1.5 (4+2bb) // $4 (Original Stack) x100 = 37.5, so I tend to push it preflop. Add a BB more if you are SB/BB with any hand since you are out of position!

      Gerv Agrees :)
