This hand is really weird.

I felt like the BTN could be making this play with ANY TWO CARDS. I decide to click it back as an ISO and then the original Cold Caller MOVES ALL IN! I call guessing that the original CC was either flipping with me, had me crushed with TT-JJ or I had him crushed... NOT TOO SURE WHAT HE'S DOING THIS WITH!

With all that being said, should I have jammed vs the BTN instead of clicking it back? Or would you just fold to this BTN shove?

Hey dirt!

I think a good opponent in MP can call your open raise from UTG with QQ-22, AK, AQ, AJs, KQs, QJs, and other SCs considering stack depth. When the BTN ships his 34bb stack I think they can have something like AA-77, AK-AT, KQ, and 1 or two rubish suited hands. When we raise, how will this affect V5's range? I think theoretically they will fold all their weak hands and continue with QQ-TT, AK. We need to win >23% and we have 27% equity against both ranges
V1: { 77+, ATs+, KQs, ATo+, KQo }
V5: { QQ-TT, AKs, AKo }
so equity wise I think our call here is okay, but I think I would prefer calling V1s raise and playing a side pot with V5.
