Me and fish: 500

Big fish limps, Bigger fish limps, solid 2+2er makes it 30 in co, folded to me in BB I think for a while and muck AKo...

Eh, I think it's worth a call

If you flop an ace chances are way high you have the best hand

If you flop a K you can lead out, trying to get action from the fish. There's a chance you can fold if the 2+2er raises, of course it depends on the flop and what the fish did

But with the chance of two fish joining in on the fun I think you want to see a flop

It two-er has been running over table, good place to slap him down, pump to to 100 or so. If he's playing solid, I like a call. Maybe A hits, and you win a big pot from one of donks with AT or whatever and two-er shuts down with his JJ.

If the solid 2+2er is the type to make lots of "pot equity" raises here with anything that figures to be favored over random hands (77, ATs, etc) then I think you need to call here. You're actually in good shape against his range, but more importantly, you have a chance to double through either of the idiots when you hit.

But on the other hand, I have no problem folding AK against tight raisers who play well postflop. Here it really comes down to whether the 2+2er has AA/KK often enough to neutralize all the EV you get from the fish paying off your TPTK.

Wow. Can you see into his soul and sense he has AA or KK?

I'd raise to 125 here. I'd have a lot of trouble even folding to a push for only 300.

Calling here gets you into a lot of tricky situations.
