      Known players:

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:heart: , Q:heart:
      UTG2 calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.50, 6 folds, UTG2 raises to $4.50, Hero calls $2.00.

      Flop: ($9.75) Q:spade: , 8:diamond: , 4:heart: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $6.50, Hero calls $6.00 (All-In), UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($21.75) J:club:
      River: ($21.75) 3:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $21.75

      Too good odds to fold preflop but on the flipside pushing looks like an overplay.

      Is calling and going in if I hit some the best option?

      Not even an option. If you call you will have put a good enough chunk of your stack in PF to be pot-committed. ie. If you call PF you go broke on just about every flop.

      Shove/fold PF, take your pick.

      Hi Jmackenzie,

      If you saw UTG2 is playing 14/5 I fold after his limp/3bet but if you did not played with a hud I think you should stick to the Remaining Stack : raise ratio

      => 7.5 :2.5 = 3 so shove

      Best regards,
