      I check raise with the intention to make him fold Jx, 4x, pocket-pairs, weak draws, air. Top-pair it's difficult in this spot now that I think of it.
      Is this a move that has some sense?

      With few hands and without any reads i consider him as a loose player so i prefer to just call his bet in spite of being a close call looking to the pot odds. If you raise here he is going to call Qx, some Jx and throw away all the other hands (there are no flush draws) and to make him fold any other hand you are risking 2224 chips to win around 1000 so in this case i prefer to control pot and re-evaluate again turn.

      Cumps ;)

      ICM wise it’s also a tricky spot. I would fold pre-flop and try to steal in position against the shorter stacks then playing a potential big pot out of position against the only player that can bust you.

      As played the flop makes it not easier and you need a lot of fold equity to make a shove profitable and on the 25c it’s to likely a big stack would call to loose here and I would try to hit my equity and call and maybe you get sometimes a free river card as well if you miss.
