      Hello Johannes,

      Due the Station & Giant Fish playing in the pot, their calling ranges are consisting of hands you have atleast beat due the Ace.

      Also there is a phenomen called ''Ihaz an Ace preflop, I call''

      Nh if you shoved

      Best regards,

      Gerv

      Yea I snap-shipped it due to

      #1 A8s > calling range from the two fish
      #2 difficulty of MP3 to call with marginal hands e.g. small pockets / AT, AJ, etc. that have good equity vs me. Not to mention other hands e.g. SC
      #3 My equity vs his calling range vs. dead money

      Wasn't sure if its totally standard though since I don't usually play SSS ;)
