Nope we need AKo/JJ+ to be shoving there and I don't know if that's even tight enough.
As for the play it could have been a hotkey missclick, had the same thing happened to me with 74o at a tourney, because I kept the all in hotkey button for 0.5 miliseconds longer than usual, at an another table.
If it wasn't that then... still 23o is better than AQo at that scenario!

Hi RiverFlat

I think your blind steal attempt is a bit mehhhh with your 17 big blind stack especially if the players behind us are aggressive.

Anyway to the question at hand xD... Generally the big blind ought to only continue with a very tight range so it's obvious here that he went for the ambitious squeeze play or he made a disastrous misclick.

The button call is standard imo. The only way I'd fold the AK to the big blinds shove would be if I had extremely solid reads that he is tight and would never ever get out of line.

Cheers, Chris.
