I had this hand today and would like to know your thoughts on what would be the correct play.

Was pretty readless as i dont have a hud but was folded round to small blind and he min raised and i took it as a steal and shoved all in, its a move a make quite a lot and as they could be raising light a lot of the time to steal the blind.

Hey DrDonkin

I'm a big fan of the shove. Villains range is for the most part super wide 'unless he's very tight but even then his range is still quite wide'.

This is a spot where I think a lot of guys like to call and see a flop because we both have 15+bb's which is about an average stack for a turbo 180 but with 1650 chips already in the middle the pot will become very bloated very quickly.
There's a little over 25% of our stack in the pot so it really would be rude to even consider playing the hand any differently.

Villain will fold most of the time and when he does have a hand to call you with the KQs has a ton of equity unless were unfortunate enough to be crushed.

Love the hand! Cheers, Chris.
