      Hi,


      When in doubt it's usually better to just shove if you plan on playing the hand. However if

      - you feel like somebody behind overshove with worse hands like AK/JJ, you can call/call

      - you know BU behind you is tight enough that if he gets involved after you called off half your stack he'll have KK+, you can call/fold since you won't be getting odds against such a tight range for 130bb.


      Hope it helps.
