Default KQ Steal situation

Im playing the 175k on ipoker.

150 left .. 50 ITM.
Blinds 150/300
UTG,MP and BTN limps and SB completes. SB has 5bb. Button has 6k and UTG and MP has around 5k.

I dont think you need to push. I think that a check is an appropriate play because of the first position limper. If he limped with a monster you are done for and the SB called a lot of his stack in order to limp into the pot which means he is getting good odds to call your all in with some dead money in the pot and possible live cards against your KQ which isnt to strong to begin with. I dont mind pushing but you are not exactly in bubble position with 50 people to the money becasue people will still call because there is a lot of play left. If you hit it you push, if you miss you can fold without losing anything. Tough choice with 7M-ish area.

I really like it unless utg is reasonably tight and your image is really loose. You are pushing for 35% gain; which means you really only need around 36% equity against their calling ranges (given standard folding ranges). I like.
