Hi quirked,

I think this is a fold. When considering a squeeze we want to be leveraging good fold equity. While we have it with our stack (22bb's) against the opener, V1 who has flat called on a 10bb stack we really don't, and 55 does not play well against his range... I expect him to be flatting a lot of broadway cards like KQ, KJ etc and mid pocket pairs 66-99. Also V5 is short stacked and may decide with a big pot brewing to take a shot with what is probably 2 more overcards to fade.

I don't mind shoving at all if we have reasonable fold equity on our side, but I think we are getting called at least by V1 and maybe more here.
