Hello,
Table is short handed , Sb has big stack, BB is very loose and plays fit or fold. I didn't want to play hand MW and there was alot of dead chips in the pot .
How do you think what's better decision there.

UTG: 19.72 BB (VPIP: 11.21, PFR: 7.76, 3Bet Preflop: 8.70, Hands: 116)
CO: 22.06 BB (VPIP: 14.15, PFR: 12.05, 3Bet Preflop: 5.39, Hands: 860)
Hero (BTN): 24.78 BB
SB: 72.97 BB (VPIP: 17.05, PFR: 14.34, 3Bet Preflop: 7.32, Hands: 260)
BB: 85.49 BB (VPIP: 33.33, PFR: 14.29, 3Bet Preflop: 10.00, Hands: 67)

I did some calculations pls check it too, if he 3bets 7.5 and he continues with 5.5 hand range than I have fold equity of 26% 7.5-5.5=2 2/7.5=26%
EV (push)= FE*bank + (1-FE)*(Eq. Hand*(bank + eff.stack)-(1-Eq.hand)*eff.stack)
3380 + 73% * (34.67%*(12675+27207)-65.33%*27207)=485
so it's +EV decision to push, but are 485 chips enough to push there? maybe it's better to set min
EV as an any percentage of effective stack?
and when i change AQo to AQs I get + 2123 chips. Now I think shove would be marginal with AQo and good decision with AQs and better with AKo . am I right?

Hey shichi-77

Given the stats on both villains and all the free juice in the middle I'm going to be shoving it in about 80% of the time. Our stack size is perfect for it and imo we have way more fold equity than just 26%....

One thing that would worry me would be the SB's 3bet sizing... it is very small so unless this is his standard 3bet sizing then I would tend to edge on the side of caution and call, I'm never going to be able to fold our hand in this spot for just 2 big blinds.

When I'm dealt hands like AQo on the button I am craving for action and it's as if I'm hoping to get 3bet, expeially by a guy with a a relatively high 3bet percentage like this guy has. If we have a laggy table image we can even get called by hands we crush when we cram it all in and some of the time I think the small blind will fold his hand and the loose big blind will look you up with all sorts of garbage hands like KJ and A9 etc.

Cheers, Chris.

So taking all the above into aount and the fact that you are only 5 handed, we ought to be cramming it in most of the time vs opponents with these stats.
