I played this hand against a 4 tabling reg, albeit not a very good one. He plays 19/14 with a 3b% of 2.5 (544 hands). He is never bluffing here so his range is the standard premium value QQ+ AK+. Against this enitire range we have 40% equity but need around 48% to make the call breakeven.

If we remove 3 of the AA combos and 2 KK combos then we have 44% equity which still isn't enough so he has to be doing this with pretty much AK only to make the call profitable. Is this a fold given that we're zooming?

Hi Oliver,

What are the reads on V4 and V5? V1's bet makes no sense, does he have reason to believe one of these guys will call him light for a huge overbet shove?

Given his stats I won't fault folding, but absent info above I would think this ridiculous overbet could be an indicator of either tilt (in which case we're probably ahead) or AK trying to max fold equity (and not caring if it gets called and flips). These lean me towards calling him.
