It is $11 Super Stack tournament on FTP with 12min slow blind level and 5000 starting stack.

He min-raised me on the flop, what should I do here?

Now pot is 1180 and I have around 1360 chips left. If I call here I will have to call his all-in on the turn also. So either I shove here myself or fold.

What to do?

Instashove. This is a dreamflop for AKo, so I will be shoving this if anyone invites me to (in this case lovrnotafighter).

I don't have 20/20 vision, so the stats screenshot is useless to me, I can't make out the figures. I did search for your opponent on OPR, which clearly indicates lovrnotafighter is a terrible player. Which only strengthens my believe for a shove, since this person will be betting a weaker king, 7-rag and even a missed pocket pair or Ace-rag, and of course the good ol' flush draw.

Yes, easy shove here.

I think we get called by the reraiser enough with spade draw or weaker K when we shove.
We don't want to face an ugly decision if a third spade comes out. We could be beat or lose action when we're ahead.

Quad Bracelet Winner
