      No stats on anyone here; I sat down a few hands ago.

      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      8 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($12.20)
      UTG+1 ($2.45)
      MP1 ($9.70)
      Hero (MP2) ($10.00)
      CO ($12.85)
      BTN ($13.85)
      SB ($3.35)
      BB ($8.75)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 8 players) Hero is MP2 A:heart: K:club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: K:spade: 5:spade: J:club: ($0.85, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, BB raises to $1, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: K:diamond: ($2.85, 2 players)
      BB bets $2.50, $2.50 to Hero ($8.60)?

      A shove is standard here, right?

      I'm not so sure if I would shove here. I mean - which worse hands are calling? KQ. Maybe KT. I doubt he's on the flushdraw and is calling your shove with it.

      The funny thing is that when I first look at the hand I think 'easy shove' and now, when I start to think more I'm getting more and more convinces that this guy has 55, JJ or KJ. Check/minraise flop looks like he wants action. He leads with a big bet on the turn.

      On the other hand I'm definately not folding here. If we call the pot will be 2,85+2,50+2,50=7,85 and we're both commited. So I guess a shove is the only possibility here, we still have 36% equity against KQ, KJ, JJ and 55 range.

      I guess I'm taking it all too far though;) . Let's wait what the judges say, now I'm very curious ;) .

      we arent folding never here especialy against a guy that isnt playing with full buyn .
      shoving is ok here . a lot of times the guy will call wit a weaker K and some times he will call with some draws that he made on the turn .
      the other option is to call and shove the river your self since you are in position if you suspect if he bluffs alot
