      2 reasons why i wtsd , first is the limp an the other is the min -raise so he has either rubbish or a monster i guess. Shoul i still fold even if it looks so fishy ?

      Hello imson0ob,

      against unknown(opponent's you don't know what range they limp/raise) I like to stick to the old articles which tell you when to go all-in after there was a raise behind you according to your raise : remaining stack ratio. For KQ you would need 1:2,5, but in this hand you get barely 1:4 thus I would prefer to fold preflop.

      If you however think information about this player would help you in the future you can push and make a note of what he does limp/raise with, but this time I think it's a bit too expensive.

      +I would raise 5BB preflop.
