Hi sapines,

The 3b sizing is grossly large, which indicates to me probably not an experienced player. And if it's a PSO series event and we don't know them, perhaps more circumstantial evidence they're new/inexperienced. I would rate them to have a hand they think is good, but also suspect that might not be as tight as JJ+/AK... they may think that AJs is a monster for example.

Given we have 5x'd it, and they only start with 29bb, I think AK is to strong to fold in this spot, personally I'd go with it.
