      shove this spot after the two limps, you stack is way to small for a normal raise.

      as played, i would fold. AK is pretty useless in a pot with more than 2 players

      i would fold my AK here i think the bu has kk or aa. the fish makes it even more likely u will get sucked out.

      A direct push is not a bad idea, but as he's still got 19bb left I think a normal raise is pretty acceptable, though you gotta raise to $3 at least.

      And no way you can fold AK against a 3 bet here, even if BU is a TAG!

      @Ishindar: The fact that the fish might call is great! We can't be afraid of getting sucked out, we'll win most often since we usually have the best hand!

      ah, sorry, i actually misread hero's stack size.

      yea, so normal raise, then fold would be my play with 19BB, but if its ~16 then i just shove.

      Hmm, I hadn't realised that MP2 is actually 4 betting here. So maybe a fold is acceptable. But I'd still have a hard time folding against a 70/22.

      i use this:

      20bb - push if there's 4 limpers or more

      16-19bb- push if there's 3 or more limpers.

      Hey taifoon,

      if BU has JJ+/AK 3-betting range you have 39.8% equity against him while pot odds give you 35.1% BEQ. And the fish entering the pot as well will most likely result in improving your BEQ, so I find call with AK quite easy here. Beside overlimp/raise is very strange line, could be KK+, but could be some random crap too.

      About direct pushes, I like standard raise IP with 19BB stack vs 2 limpers. However, I might push this if I was sitting OOP in the blinds, but even so I think 19BB is a bit too much to push directly.

      Regards,
      burek2000
