      PokerStars - $0.50 NL (9 max) - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $13.00
      UTG: $25.00
      UTG+1: $10.75
      Hero (MP): $19.25
      MP+1: $20.85
      LP: $13.10
      CO: $8.50
      BTN: $9.05
      SB: $10.35

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has Q:spade: Q:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.50, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $1.25, BB calls $1.00

      Flop: ($4.50, 3 players) J:club: 9:diamond: 7:heart:
      SB bets $8.85 and is all-in, BB calls $8.85, Hero ????

      I'd just doubled up. Less than 10 hands of stats on each Villain. I folded. Should I be frogmarched from the building and shot on the spot?

      Imo, I think it's generally a fold, although I think its based much more upon opponent, I see time and time again opponents overbet shoving draws. I think in general though, you need to have reads to make the call, against unknowns I think the fold is the right move.

      Just my thoughts!

      Hi,

      Depending on the stack sizes and the passive blind defends, I recon both are fish.

      I would just shove as they can make this move with TPNK+, draws, middle pairs and stuff.
      Of course you will also see 2-pairs made straights and sets.

      Still OP against 2 fish is the nuts IMO.

      Nice to see some disagreement! I'll post the result once a hand evaluator has had a look.

      Hey jbpatzer,

      You have 26 BB effective stack and an overpair... ...easiest shove in the world.

      Ha ha! But what do you really think? Villains had AJ and KJ and turn and river blanked. Smartypants!
