Default Makin a move with KQ, 50+5

Reads: PFRaiser has been minraising in late position last 3 hands and everyone has folded to him. Probably a steal and since shortstack didn't push I assume a marginal hand.

Whoa. I read this as he doesn't want to scare you out of the pot.

I'm guessing you got called by both?

If you were facing just the minraise guy *and* you had enough chips for FE...then maybe you push.

I don't really like this move b/c the cold caller pretty much has to call and the big stack guy is probably calling anyway even if he's been min-raising a lot of hands.

Your stack is not big enough to get anyone to fold preflop. So just call and push the flop.

This read is based on the fact that he has been making minraises from late position the last 3-4 hands and people have been folding to it.

If you really want to know what happened, minraiser folded and shortstack called with QT.

I like the push on the flop idea though.

The bigstack is too likely to call your push, I don't like it. I'm probably throwing this one to the muck. I'm not *that* desperate yet.
