Kaptain Awesome facing lots of action preflop

Live $3/5
Buy In: $100-300
9 Handed

Player / Stacks / Reads:
UTG / $85 / Kind of fishy limit player
SB / $300 / very good tag who just sat down and wouldn't have a read on UTG
BB / $300 / hero, not sure if SB really knows how I play, though we've played at the same table quite often, including in $5/5 games.

Preflop
UTG calls, 6 folds, SB raises to $25.... his range at this point is fairly wide, top ~30% of hands

Hero looks down at Kaptain Awesome offsuit and calls figuring that with position, he has a better chance of getting SB's money since he'd expect AK to raise him and he will ~100% c-bet the flop...

UTG raises all-in for $85... His range here should be very small, but the table hasn't been very aggressive preflop, so I put him more on AK + TT-QQ than KK / AA...

SB insta-shoves for $275 more.... I think his range could be narrowed to all pairs and AK / AQ, all pairs are included because once he opens, he is less likely to fold (I once saw him 3-bet preflop with 33 on the button and call a shove)...

Hero should...?

FWIW - Had SB just called, I would have pushed all-in, but I don't think SB knows that.

Re: Kaptain Awesome facing lots of action preflop

If your reads are right, call. If both your A and K are overs, you are getting a great price.

Dat feel when you fold and SB shows 88.

If you fold here just go home, I took AA out because he snap shoved.

If you have a read on him, he probably has a read on you.

Yeah feels like SB is isoing the fish with dead money. You flatted for deception I'd feel good getting it in here AK vs underpairs and dominated Aces a lot of the time. But I'm no short stack expert.

Edit: I thought hero was Kaptain awesome not his hand. -3pts IMO

Re: Kaptain Awesome facing lots of action preflop

I think this is a pretty easy call. Its more interesting if you have AQ.

This game has a max $300 buy in, so we are all stuck with medium stacks. Given stack sizes, was the deception a good play or should I have raised?
