      Open limp BU is a sign of weakness most of the time.If he was playing tricky, make a note and go on.

      I disagree with darkonebg and I would fold to the raise. Some of the villains like to limp with KK, AA and reraise if they get raised. Especially such loose players.

      It still may be a bluff. If BU openlimps with KK or AA, then he usually coldcall bet.

      And for 67,64 BB, I am willing to take my chances since I have a big fold equity against ranges other that AA, KK, AK. And then make a note.

      he did have KK, but I still believe that shove is right move

      Of course it was a good move. You had FE to win directly $6 and still it was stupid move of his and I think that he might make this move with worse hands.

      You were just unlucky that you did not suck out on him. He was only 2,5:1 ahead :)
