8 BB left in the Premier and the limping villain limped a lotaspecialy broadways in early position. The big stack in the button likes to use his stack when people make small raises and schove over the top right away. maybe i ticked off the villain by shoving over her twice with PP before this wit 4 and 5 BB left. i thought about a 4 BB raise leaving me with just over half a stack and a lot of players behind and de shoving russian in the end so i descided to push. again i maybe should have stayed for points but then again i may not get a better chance to make me some chips.
Smart move? Only move? or call see what is happening?

AK pre is always nice, especially when short. UTG+1 limps. That's not what I wanted, but I'm not going to muck the AK. In low buyins, limping is usually weak, but I haven't a clue what the buyin was for this one.... So I'm going to shove. Good move. Limpers calls and shows KQ. Not fond of that call. He's pretty much drawing to 3 queens now, 4 diamonds, or 3 cards for a straight. He's still going to win this 1 out of every 4 hands, so all we can do is hope this is one of the other 3. Nothing you can do here, the hand pretty much plays itself.
