      i'd say its a difficult spot without any reads or at least some general knowledge of your opponents.

      at least it would be nice to know, if MP1 tends to raise limpers very often or if he tends to limp in more often if someone limped in before.
      also it would be nice to know if MP1 or CO tend to make some hero calls with low pockets.

      without that information i'd say a push with 5 players behind you is marginal at best, since you need a considerable amount of foldequity.
      You should notice, that showing 88 here loosens up your image, which might be a good thing, depending on your playing style.

      btw: You might get more objective replys if you delete everything after "Hero raises to $43 (AI)". just like you don't post your opponents holecards.

      Limpers make this spot kind of annoying but unless they are 5/4 players I think I still squeeze. against a 17 pfr MP1 I reckon he's raising enough for this play to be fine even if he is raising too small.

      I guess you could always errr on the side of caution and not squeeze though..... Villain is MP1 and has action before him, thus tightening up his range possibly considerably!

      Some more info on MP1's raising habits could be insightful in making a decision.

      even if u have no fe u'd just need 33% against his callingrange
      and against a 17pfr u've got a lot fe

      -> equilator :rolleyes:

      I agree with Gonzo394, we need A LOT more info than just VPIP/PFR

      As I see it now with the information presented, I just shove it preflop. Making your image wild with a EV=0 spot is still +EV

      But I think the squeeze in general is +EV
