fold pre flop

u are not in good shape against this field and are in no rush to get your chips in the pot

u will at best be slightly ahead....but most likely be far behind

I would fold this without thinking. I don't like the push because MP2 (assuming he's decent) is pot-committed at this point, considering all the dead money in the middle. So basically you have to figure out how KQ fares against his range, and even against a loose range (like 55+, A7+, QJ+), you're a good bit behind. The dead money makes up for some of that, but if his raising range is tighter, like AJ+ &amp; 99+, you're in significantly more trouble. This isn't even factoring in the times one of the callers will call you with a pair or even hands that dominate you like AQ. Fold.

I would need at least AQ or TT to make this move, maybe more.

Nobody seems to like so I'll give my thoughts nobody has really shown strength I think the hands that I am behind qq+ aq+ are pretty unlikely. Given that I am probally racing with like a thousand dead. Does it still seem terrible?
