Is your image one where UTG2/SB may be expecting a squeeze from you?
Has UTG taken any river/turn beats where s/he played a bit too passively?
If my reads were that UTG was 'protecting' AQ/AK/QQ/JJ/TT etc. and SB could not flat AA/KK then I'd just shove and expect UTG2 to call.
If my reads left me feeling very uncomfortable, fold.
UTG2 is actually the one on tilt. UTG isn't. SB isn't flatting KK+ and I'm positive he isn't waiting for a squeeze. Even if I didn't know the SB, his stack-size kinda tells
me he isn't waiting for a squeeze but he has some sort of TT/JJ hand that he just can't let go. In order for me to squeeze in that spot, I'm going to have to do it with big cards because I believe I don't have too much fold equity.
I agree, that shoving might be the best play.
