My suggestion: Raise to 600, fold to push from BB. Not sure what to do about push from MP. Pick one and hate it I guess.

The only thing is that if MP does push you have to call it and if BB is a good player, he'll come over the top with alot of hands.

I probably would make the same play though since I don't expect a 55'er to push with alot of hands in BB. So basically to raise/fold is 50/50.

What kind of range would you be pushing with as BB here? I'd be keeping it pretty tight, as he has 2/3 of your stack afterall... Now, if he had more like 1/3 of my stack I'd be doing it with a whole lot more hands. Bad thinking on my part?

I also am missing the beauty of pushing over the top of an MP push (with UTG still to act) from the BB with a wide range of hands. Please explain.

I meant that if MP folds, BB could come over the top of you if he suspects that you'll fold a lot of hands.

Yeah, you said it yourself, no reason to expect a good player.

But even at a higher level (he knows I am good, he knows I know he is good), if you also standard raise with QQ+ and AK, Shania should be taken care of, making the standard raise... standard. Right?

I like this line.

I also don't think the BB comes over the top as much as some people think.
