      if he is a standard sss player you are actually un underdog against his raise BUT since we can't know that right now and there's dead money this is a pretty standard push.

      You have enough equity even if he's a PS.com SSS player because of the limper and the blinds. Nice hand.

      if MP3 is a PS.com SSS player...
      his raising range is 99+,AQs+,AQo+ (5.1%)

      with AKo if he calls your equity is 48.65%

      in the hand you have to invest 1.85$ in order to win a pot of (1.85+0.1+0.15)*0.95=2 $, and you need an equity of 1/(1+2/1.85)=48%

      so even if MP3 is a PS.com SSS the push is slightly +EV (even without taking into account FE)

      against an unknown player it's an easy push ;)

      nice hand

      Hello Anduke,

      Easy push as advised by Basic SSS.

      @ mkk9901

      Take in consideration that his sample size is invalid and speculating will often lead to inaccurate calculations. If you shove here you have to shove with >50% equity but against his calling range (stack :: raise ratio) you only have 48.6% with AKo.

      He only fold 99 if he is a PS SSS player so your FE is not that huge therefore I elect to fold if you are sure he is a PS SSS as adviced by the PS article ''how to play against a SSS players'' because the dead money (1 limper= 1% less Break-Even equity) doesn't compensate a lot.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
