      Hi,

      I raised pocket 10s UTG because my table image is very tight and I find that the SB is very loose. I get 1 caller and the SB min3bet. I decided to shove with pocket 10s because I believed the caller is weak and SB is very loose so I didn't respect his min3bet. Besides that I thought the caller is dead money, so I believe that I have the min equity. Generally, how to play against min 3bet? Thanks

      Hey JHTAN,

      Nice hand! You can treat such minraisers as ordinary raisers which means you should go all-in with TT+/AK. Also, you get very good odds since SB is very shortstacked and the cold caller usually means dead money as you correctly predicted.
