      Much the same as the 77 post but you have fold equity.

      On the other hand that miniraise looks suspicious and the more I think about it the more it looks like a monster (or a really bad play) and therefore maybe a fold is the right option again.

      On another track does anyone think that as played a push on the flop was possibly the right play?

      If they have anything other than AA KK QQ AJ JJ and maybe TT (ok so it doesn't leave much) you will probably get them to fold to win $7.75 or you will lose $5.50 90% of the time they call.

      Hey Tim64,

      when you raise LP(steal) and get reraised you can easily go broke with 99+/AQ+. So, just shove preflop.
