Just wondering if KTs would be a decent hand to play in this situation.
Im playing 1/2 with a 20bb stack.its a $10 splash pot and the btn straddles to $5. Two callers and 1 raise to 20 its folded to me in the big blind. Shove or fold?
Depends on the players. Also you don't say where the straddle comes from (UTG, BTN or ??) Also stack sizes are important, anyone still in the hand short or is everyone >$200?
If you shove you have to get thru the 2 limpers and the initial raiser and possibly the straddle so how they play means a lot to me. Are any of them likely to be slow playing a a big PP? Any of them the type to limp/call-off with AQ/AK/medPP?
If you just just call, how likely are you to see a big raise out of those still left to act? I wouldn't be opposed too much to calling here if I knew I'd see the flop for $20.
If I'm finding the players easy to play against in 'normal' hands then couldn't fault folding KTs here when your OOP and still have players that can act.
