18 players left top 5 paid. Once the UTG+1 flatted I thought he can be doing it with 55-AA. As with AA & KK he would want more callers. And with 44-88, he can fold if someone shoves over his flat.

That's what normally people do with 44-88 first call a shove then fold if someone reshove. Or trap with AA, KK.

So should I be shoving here or is it fine to fold.

I have no hands on any opponents as I was just moved to a new table.

Hi adi,

I think it's a fold, yes. 2750 more is a lot of our remaining stack to see a flop, and we don't likely have enough to squeeze the big stack out of the pot here. If we had like 20K-23K maybe a shove becomes more effective.

tbh it's probably close all around the board, but I'd probably err on the side of caution and fold since we have enough chips to effectively steal and resteal still at this point.
