      The 20 hands from the UTG guy came from the current table. Should I have pushed because he has a VP$IP of 50 or was the fold okay because of the reraise of the UTG+2 raiser? (And yeah, I know that 20 hands is a too small sample, but a VP$IP of 50 tells something even at 20 hands, doesn't it?)

      The point is, there first was just a minraise from a (at first sight) veeeery loose player, even in early position he could have anything. So the reraise of the UTG+2 guy probably isn't as strong as it seems... Or Is it?

      minraises are not real raises ( well they are, but not to us) so it's correct to push AKo here.

      20 hands are not a good sample, but you can see a tendency in UTG to be a donk ... a minraise UTG is also an indication ;) you have dead money and a great hand here ( CO and UTG are dead money lot's of times )

      I think both push and fold are alright in this situation. There is UTG minraiser and a UTG reraiser and you can easily give them some respect, but on the other hand, there's also some dead money from CO and you have a decent hand...

      I personally would push against unkown, but fold isn't a mistake as well.

      Hello Stefu,

      minraisers preflop are considered limpers unless proven otherwise (minraises with Aces eg.) therefore you face a limp and a raise so you must push AKo here

      on Nl10 stick to basic SSS and ignore stats ;)
      Best regards,

      Gerv
