      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB = ($11.45)
      BB (Hero) = ($9.07)
      MP3 = ($6.15)
      CO = ($10.85)
      BU = ($5.85)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q :heart: , Q :diamond: .
      MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.50, MP3 raises to $6.15, 2 folds, Hero?

      I made the move hoping to either pick up dead money or to isolate the 2nd best hand. Then out of nowhere a fairyl passive tight player shoves after limping.

      You don't see people do that much so its hard to give them a range, would they do that with AA or KK? Is it an attempt at protecting a hand like JJ, QQ, TT v potential overcards? Or is it likely to be someone who wants to ride on the variance train with a hand like AK?

      if very passive players makes it, it is usually AA/KK, but I´ve also seen people limp/raising with AK
      Anyway you shouldn´t fold against middlestack who can easily do that with some kind of pp or random Ax hands. I think you should be ahead more than 50% which makes it quite easy call
