Default $11 99 shorty pushes, weak player calls?

The reason we limp is to see a cheap flop and to be able to get away from a hand... what do you do here vs shorty and weak player (I might also be the weak player... lately [img]/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]?

Honestly, even with your read I don't look to call shortie's push - especially not closing the action. It having already been called, it's time to bow out.

I like to be a little tighter, but I probably fold this even without riverplayer calling. Shortie has to know someone will call him, meaning either you're behind to just shortie, or to both shortie and the inevitable caller. Once riverplayer called, I'm definitely folding.

After that call, the fold becomes obvious. A three way fight is not what you want, especially with a medium pp.

I like pusing to isolate against the shorty. I think you will get a lot of folds from Riverplayer and his dead money will give you a nice overlay if you are against 2 overs. If you lose you won't be that badly off, and I think you are crushing the shorty's pushing range here. I would not be surprised to see a small pocket pair or Ax or some other garbage. I also think Riverplayer is folding most of the time to your reraise, as he's shown weakness twice in the hand.
