Hi Jig,

IF you think there is fold equity then a resteal is fine. I don't think the guy is folding very often personally, on this depth of money he should be planning to call a shove by your stack size when he opens. If the guy were a decent player I would pass here for that reason, a decent player is only going to open hands that he's stacking off and that range K7 does not fair well against.

If he's actually going to raise/fold a reasonable % of the time then the shove as a resteal is fine. And you did say you thought he was folding a lot, but you should probably re-evaluate that read as it doesn't seem likely given that he raise/called with QJo.
