Game is 1-2 with 9 players I’m 160 effective stack size. Previous hand I correctly folded AK diamonds under the gun +1 with top pare drawing dead on turn against a set of 7’s. Now I’m UTG with ace of spades king of hearts. I open to 20 large raise but I’m out of position and don’t want a bunch of calls. UTG +1 calls Lowjack calls. SB makes it 115. Back to me and I think there’s 60 in the middle of dead money and opt to jam the rest of my 160 stack.
So at that point the rest of this post is irrevelant as your decision making is complete at that point. So looking at it a bit differently:
UTG (HERO - AKo) - Raise to 20
UTG+1 - Calls 20
UTG+2 - Folds
MP(LJ) - Calls 20
MP(HJ) - Folds
CO - Folds
BTN - Folds
SB - Raises to 115
BB - Folds
UTG (HERO) - Raises to 160 and is all in
One can debate the size of your UTG raise but it's a 1/2 cash game and that is really dependent on the table. When it comes back to you there's 177 in the middle and you have 140 behind you. Clearly calling makes no sense as your SPR is less than 1 (leaving 45 behind at this point I'm not sure why you would ever just call) so it's shove or fold.
You're getting better than 2 to 1 to call so the question in my mind comes down to...if you call will you be heads-up? If you get heads up this is a call every time. You're flipping QQ and worse; dominating AQ and worst, and in bad against KK and AA.
But...is your equity
better than 33% if the LJ comes along? If they call you're getting 3 to 1 but your AK may not be 33% against multiple hands. Again, because it's a cash game I'm more inclined to call as I can just rebuy if you lose. Really getting your money is good is the key and I really don't think you overplayed your hand personally.
