It's $3 Satellite on a fish infested website. It's a 5mins level turbo MTT.

I am approx less then half way into the satellite.

Blinds: 25/50, 8 Handed at the moment


Position (Stack): Action

UTG (970): Limps 50
UTG+1: Hero (1375): Raises to 200
MP: Folds
Hi-Jack: Folds
Cut-off (1415): Calls 200
Button (1375): Calls 200
SB (1660): Calls 200
BB (3770): Calls 200
UTG (970): Calls 200

Flop: , Pot Size: 1200

SB: Moves all-in for 1460
BB: Moves all-in for 2515
UTG: Moves all-in for 670
UTG+1 (Hero): (Pot Size: 5845)
CO: Action Pending
Button: Action Pending

I can easily call if there are 2 shoves before me but 3 shoves someone will have two pair or set I think. Plus one of them might have small flush draw so I don't even have 9 spades outs I might have 6 outs at best coz anyone can also have single spade in his hole card.

I think my queen and ace will not be alive only flush draw with at best 7 outs.

I can tell you that this is total fish website and if 4 players are all-in I never fold over-pair to the board and 8 out of 10 times I am ahead.

I just don't feel like calling 3 shoves here.

What should I do here?

Hi adi,

With 23bb left in our stack and a multi-way all in (fish infested no less), I can't get the chips in fast enough with 2 big overs + the nut flush draw.

We easily have a great price to go for it here. What are we protecting? 23bb's? It's not like we are putting a huge pile at risk. A successful result here, however, and a huge pile is exactly what we'll have.
