This hand was played in the Micro Millions-022: Progressive Super Knockout.

BTN is loose passive (52):31/8/0.8

SB (94): 15/5/5.0
TOT 3bet: 5.4
Squeeze: 14

ISO SHOVE vs. SB? Fold preflop?

You've got enough chips to raise/fold preflop depending on the action, so opening the action is fine.

Even though the SB seems quite tight, you've got a small sample and even tight players can see profitable spots to squeeze with hands other than premiums.

You can mess with around with some ranges on Equilab/Poker Stove. I gave him a range of 66+, AQo+, AJs, KQs and you have an equity of about 47%, so you've easily got the pot odds to be stacking off. Add the progressive KO and the fact that you will still be in OK shape if you lose, so getting it in is fine.

I'd choose to move all in myself to fold out V9's equity and just take his dead money for free. If he's slowplaying AA/KK, well done to him.
