      Hello BigAl123456,

      Since he doesn't have full stack that usually means he is a bad player and in some way even the stats could indicate to that. So shoving over his raise on flop is likely fine and we should get pretty decent equity against his shoving range. Plus we have a backdoor even if he has there an Ace with our Q :diamond: .

      For example we put him on such range:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 53,213% 52,554% 1,317% 46,129% QQ
      Player 2: 46,787% 46,129% 1,317% 52,554% 99+, ATs+, 98s, 87s, ATo+, 98o, 87o

      Also we could wide up the range and I think what gives us even more equity. Nice hand.

      Best regards.
