      I think that push is fine here, BU is probably stealing blinds, so this leaves us with SB who is 18/13 - quite loose and he is restealing so there is a big possibility his 3bet range is wider and you have one of top hands.

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 45,930% 38,432% 14,996% 46,571% 99+, AJs+, KQs, AJo+
      Player 2: 54,070% 46,571% 14,996% 38,432% AKo

      I think that could be his resteal range, you have over 54% equity and there is still BU's dead money in game.

      Hello theperni,

      I would consider BU as dead money because he is stealing and will have to fold immense part of his stealing range to 3- and 4-bet. About SB's resteal I could only say AKo should be ahead of any common resteal range. For example, the tightest resteal range I can come up with would be AQ+/TT+ and even against so tight range AKo has 49% equity, which is enough to push profitably with dead money from SB.

      If you might have any additional questions feel free to click the "Advise judge to have another look" button.

      Regards!
