      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $24.65
      MP1:
      $47.35
      MP2:
      $8.00
      MP3:
      $50.90
      CO:
      $24.85
      BU(Hero):
      $21.95
      SB:
      $42.20

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, K.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1.75, SB calls $1.50, BB raises to $7, 2 folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.00.

      BB 39/0.0/AF0.8/AFq33/18hands

      Not many hands but probably a passive calling station.

      Hi theperni,

      I would push here without further info because: 1- you are open-raising from BU, so villain could see it as ATS. 2 - SB cold calls thus increasing pot odds. 3 - He is squeezing, so his range can be quite wider.

      Nonetheless, I think a fold is alright if you wish to avoid higher variance, given youa re overstacked.

      Hey theperni,

      against resteal squeeze I'm certainly pushing here. BB's range should be wide enough, not if he's a true calling station, but I wouldn't make such conclusions based on 18 hands, I don't even think calling station would 3-bet AA here so I'm pretty certain he's not complete calling station.

      As played, folding isn't much of a mistake with double stack.
