    Hi adohole,

    Pretty annoying spot.

    Limp, Call, Shove, nice line

    I think the shove looks quite alot like a draw to me. Thats all that really makes sense. Problem is 1 pair doesn't do that great versus a draw and some over cards. There's a small chance it could be a smaller pocket pair just hoping you didn't raise with a 7 or 8 which is reasonable but probably still not a great shove.

    It seems like a big pot to lose, but you have only invested 900 chips. I don't think we can commit 50BBs and give up the great start you have with just top pair here.

    Calling could be slightly +EV but I thing it's very swingy. And not profitable enough to want to risk the great start.

    I think you are right it's a fold and wait for a better spot.

    Hope you did well.
