      Wow, big hand. Lots of action. Hard spot.

      You can probably make a case for folding if opponents are unknown, as the 3-better preflop and initial better on flop can easily hold AA or KK -- and with the action provided from the other caller pre, without reads it's just a really hard call.

      Even though you posted results, I don't think that influences my decision as there is just so much action. If you think the initial better on the flop will fold to your shove then it's okay, but the odds he gets after your call make it so he will basically never fold there.

      Top 2 pair is a good hand but against 2 players that show that much strength, might be correct to lay it down? I'm not sure at all, as I said at the beginning of my post, I would have a very hard time with this hand.

      Edit: Now that I look at it, you could probably also make a case for shoving preflop.

      I 4bet/shove preflop (you have to get the QJs hands out :D )

      as played, there is only 1 AA and 1 KK out there so top 2 is a push here anyday, he'll be holding AQ,AK a lot so its definitely +EV :)

      This looks like a squeeze.
      I´m happy to get my money all-in here with AK, so I don´t mind making it 30$ and calling shove, also there is now dead money in the pot.
