      I shove it. I give him a lot of broadways that you dominate and a lot of PP's that you have FE against but are only just an underdog against if he calls.

      He could be Isolating something like A8x+ (wider would be a leak in his game imo but it can happen) KT+ QT+ JT+ and 55 or 66+

      I don't think the ATS stat is so useful here as there are two callers in front of BU.

      Imo this may mean his range is tighter. If there is only 1 limper, it's more likely to be an Iso raise and then i think we can push profitably, but with two I think the raise may indicate genuine strength. Villain can't hope to isolate both opponents...

      Still, the dead money means your move is not likely to be a big mistake.

      Hey RahXephon1,

      nice hand. According to the articles you can shove AQ here and with dead money in the pot it's even more profitable. And there are also quite few hands you have dominated and PPs against which you're flipping in villain's range.
