The main concerns here are UTG and CO who is 4betting for the fist time after a tiny sample.
CO could be isolating MP which look like fishy (sizing of 3bets) so it's hard to fold, but then UTG who seems on the nitty side so far is left to act.
We have a strong holding for our position, can we play it, and if so how, or easy fold ?
I can’t really see a fold or anything but a shove here also. This MP min3bet can be virtually anything playable to his liking even 85s because this is not a reg. After that CO 3bet doesn’t look that scary also as he is gonna be playing IP vs a weak player. So yeah, you should shove.
It's early enough in the game I see either a shove (given your stack size), or a fold as both valid moves. We are still mostly in a vacuum and it depends on what style of game you want to play. Low risk for chips or aggressive higher variance and bigger rewards.
Personally I like a shove here, but only because the risk does not mean my entire stack. Then again tomorrow I may think differently lol
...I cut my deck to the Queen of Spades, but the cards were all the same...
UTG first raise seems a little weak. It's possible he's trying to slow play/build on a monster but I feel he will fold next. Mp made a decent 3bet. I would be worried he is holding a monster. The co made a 4 bet that seems a little Ott. I believe he has maybe a strong hand like AQ AJ or a smaller pocket pair. If I were in CO holding AA or KK I would be happy to let MP play into me. I think he has a good hand but wants to chase out. Folding is a no brainer. You have a monster and the pot is building for you. If you shove into AA or KK your likely bust. Even possibly big slick at the CO. I would call and try to small ball. That's 30% of your stack. And watch how they behave. It would leave 20 BB left. More than enough to come back should aces or Kings fall on the flop. I would small ball because if they do not hold AA or KK and the flop shows no A or K. They might be squirming and you could apply pressure. But hey I'm no pro
Difficult to say, because you have not written the most important information. What kind of game is it? Tournament? What is the speed of the tournament? Is it a bubble?
Information in 30 hands is not a significant enough value, it is too early to conclude.You can easily go all-in, because a stack of 35 bb allows us to do it. If this is SNG, you can go all in, because in these tournaments we play only to take first place.
