      MP: $6.10 (152.5 bb)
      CO: $1 (25 bb)
      BTN: $5.73 (143.3 bb)
      SB: $4.73 (118.3 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5.29 (132.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A J
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.12, 2 folds, Hero raises to $5.29 and is all-in, CO calls $0.88 and is all-in

      Flop: ($2.02) J Q Q (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: ($2.02) Q (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($2.02) 9 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      I assume this is fine against a shortstack?
      If I had made a smaller bet I would be commited anyways, and I stand a better chance right here right now.

      The one and the big reason why I would recommend you making a 3bet than ship the stack is that if you ship in the stack -> he can't bluff, but if you 3bet (it should be less than your standard) you give him a chance to try bluffing you some times + the AI move looks much stronger than your 3bet.

      One thing you should keep in mind is that if he is constantly auto re-buying to 1$ (25bb) he might not be some random short stacked fish but a guy who plays after 'short stack strategy' and in that case you should look up how they play after 'short stack strategy' and adopt accordingly.

      I know I had played against few of those 'short stack strategy' guys a few months earlier basically the guy opened to 0.12 and was playing like 15+ tables or something so I did 3bet him each time to ~24 and so he folded almost in every cases and in some went AI but since my 3bet was so small it was really profitable + he didn't adapted.

      I think that we can consider 3betting smaller - like $0.26, so we can have a bluff range as well.
      If we 3bet shove here we should stick to a solid value range and we can never bluff 3bet something like K2.
