Still far from the money. Is this an easy push knowing that we're getting called? I don't know what villain is doing, raising 1/2 his stack here (maybe he read harrington?).

I push here aswell unless you have alot of info on this guy.

At a 20+2 the villain most likely doesn't know what he's doing either.

You should go for the stop'n'go if you're pushing, I think. Although if the villain is completely clueless (like his raise indicates) he could of course even fold to your push preflop. In a 50+5, I'd stop'n'go here.

Edit: looks like ICM is on my side here too. If villain is pushing with top 15%, it's a clear call.

What's your read on the guy? I'd probably push, no way I call, only push or fold here.

Why is calling and pushing every flop worse than pushing preflop? This is a place where you can create fold equity with a little fancy playing.
