    Hi amit934! The first problem with this hand is the initial action preflop. If I raise, I need to make a standard raise, which is to between 2.5-3x the previous bet and a pot-sized raise. I cannot raise smaller or I'm giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. Being in middle position and facing a raise, I need to muck this preflop. If I did raise, I need to raise to 480, which is a problem because with it being UTG that initially raised, they should have a very strong range and ATs does not play well against it. ATs is not strong enough to call even one shove here, let alone 2, so this needs to be a snap-muck. The only aces I'd even consider calling two shoves with here are AA or maybe AK and AK could even be a muck depending on opp types (not provided). Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        I was chatting to someone on Skype yesterday and they came up with a nice expression:

        I'd snap-fold as if my cards were on fire!
