Hi Chipster,

I think two TAG players both willing to hold out till 5BBs ranges to shove and call probably have A6o in bad shape. In this apot we're either small favourite vs hands like KQ, QJ, etc, or a pretty big dog vs most Ax and alot of pocket pairs.

I would fold in this spot.

We're also not closing the action here is the BB wakes up with a hand we have 25BBs allin in really bad shape.

Thanks
Andy
