      AKo against a tight raise from MP2 is in a pretty marginal situation. However, the loose CC from BU makes the odds good enough imo (you'd need 45% BE if I'm not wrong), so I'd push here.

      Hi Tim64,

      With AKo I squeeze here easily , 7 PFR is average and raise first unopened is always slightly higher towards 9-10%

      Even without the CC it's pretty alright to push, isn't it?

      Even if his range is the conservative 7%, you're still ahead 52% against it. So yes, definitely fine even without the CC.
