      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $100,00
      BB:
      $60,00
      UTG2:
      $115,30
      MP1:
      $46,30
      MP2:
      $65,10
      MP3:
      $15,50
      Hero:
      $14,00
      BU:
      $21,00

      0,5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:club: , 8:club:
      2 folds, MP2 calls $1,00, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $14,00 (All-In)


      If I was reraising him to $5, I think I might get a caller from BU+ so that's why I semi-chubokov this one.

      My table image was very tight as in 8/7 so can I just shove it here with A8s with my 14bb stack?

      where are the Stats of the CO?

      The CO-Limp looks really weak.
      So you can Push here directly. this is +EV

      But a Iso-Raise to 4,5$ can be a possibilty too.
      BU, SB (& BB too) are all tight player who do not call your Raise with bad hands.

      So if BU/SB/BB reraise you, you have an easy laydown.
      The risk-reward-ratio is better with an Iso-Raise, i think

      I think the push is good.

      after a 4.5 or 5$ raise its hard to fold due a 3-bet, because you will get very good odds, when you get raised.
