      UTG is 38/15 after 13 hands. Had not seen him go to showdown, but he had lost about half of his stack in the last 5 hands by cold-calling raises and 3bets preflop and folding on the flop.

      BB is a multitabler. Had 3bet my raise a few times, low cold-call percentage.

      Stacks:
      UTG ($3.12)
      UTG+1 ($8.44)
      CO ($6.43)
      BTN ($9.55)
      Hero (SB) ($9.80)
      BB ($29.79)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is SB K:club: A:diamond:
      UTG raises to $3.12, 3 folds, Hero ???

      Fold, call or shove?

      Hi,


      I'm calling. The fish doesn't seem to be in the best state of mind right now and is bound to donk off his money one way or another soon, i want it first and AKo is a very powerful hand.

      Reason i'm not shoving is because i don't expect BB to just overcall for 30bb with 100bb effective stacks almost ever. If he happens to have a huge hand we're screwed either way, but i think if he has a hand like AQ he might put us on something marginal like 88 that is good enough to go broke against the fish but maybe will fold to a shove, so i want to give him the opportunity to jam over me. It's mostly from your comments about him 3betting a bit and it's thin, if you want to just shove yourself it's fine too.


      Hope it helps.
