      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:diamond: , Q:diamond:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.20, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.20, MP3 calls $0.20, 2 folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero raises to $1.85 (All-In)...

      Final Pot: $4.30

      - None of the players behind have reraised so they probably have hands that cannot call a shove.
      - Only player to worry about is UTG2 but he is raising reasonably loose and he has all the players behind to worry about.
      - Minraise at these limits can often be very weak: 77/88/AJ.
      - Even if he has a strong hand from time to time there is plenty of dead money.

      Is this a good spot to attack or should I fold and let them battle out their family pot?

      Could I even call and look for my flush/straight draws? *blasphemy*

      Hi Phil,

      On these limits, I prefer a simple shove since you don't want to be in a 5-way pot drawing to something OOP.

      Generally ignore minraises here and reraise those 3.5 times ;)
      Nice hand,

      Gerv
