      Is it ok to go for broke here vs a mid stack?

      Hey John.

      Nothing you can do here, if he has gotten lucky. Check/call the flop looks like he has played a 2, or 44, but shit happens. No way to get away for the quarter pot size bet left.

      It is definitely not wrong. Midstackers often go broke with really weird stuff worse than top pair.

      With TP/GK or better I'm nearly always going broke against them
