At a $22, hmm, I don't think a push can be far wrong.

Calling is no good. You're going to miss the flop too often to justify throwing out 1/7 of you chips. A push seems okay to me as well, but I don't want an okay move in level one. I would usually fold with frustration and move on the next hand.

Well I pushed, but the more I think about it the more I prefer folding. Result was just plain weird, most of them stayed in (KQo?!), all dominated... don't think there's much to be learnt from it, but for your amusement - here it is:

HERO is all-In [785]
UTG is all-In [770]
UTG+1 folds.
MP1 is all-In [675]
MP3 is all-In [675]
** Dealing Flop ** [ Ks, 7d, 7h ]
** Dealing Turn ** [ 7s ]
** Dealing River ** [ 2c ]
MP1 shows [ Ad, Qd ] three of a kind, sevens.
MP3 shows [ Th, Ah ] three of a kind, sevens.
HERO shows [ Kd, Ac ] a full house, Sevens full of kings.
UTG shows [ Kc, Qh ] a full house, Sevens full of kings.
HERO wins 1620 chips from the main pot with a full house, Sevens full of kings.
UTG wins 1620 chips from the main pot with a full house, Sevens full of kings.

I fold this. I think pushing is ok also (probably better). I always become more passive when I see bigger than 3xBB raises in level 1-2.

I hate calling.
Pushing is okay.
Personally I fold.

My guess is that I'll be getting at least 2 callers, and AK isn't that strong the more people that come along. Just from personal experience, this is a spot where a bunch of people will be going in. I'd rather let 3 or 4 players bust themselves, than get involved in that kind of pot with AKos.
