      I think this is a bit of a tough spot because of the stack sizes. I decided to 3-bet/call his btn raise but given the stack sizes perhaps this should just be a call pre-flop?

      Hero (BB) ($18.51)
      UTG ($7.45)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, A
      6 folds, Button bets $0.40, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.20, Button raises to $3.75 (All-In), Hero calls $2.55

      Hello JonikoP,

      Nah, your line is totally fine, his BU open-raise range should be pretty wide and going broke from there ain't wrong. Nice hand! Otherwise if you don't want to go broke, I think I'd more often prefer to just fold against a shorty.

      Best regards.
