      My first shot into NL25 (just got the bankroll allowing it , so I'd like to be sure this is still correct at that limit. In NL10 it is, but here?

      Nh, I'm pretty sure that this is correct at any limit, as you're not folding QQ vs 2 fishes ever, especially vs a short stack. Vs a CRAI from a 100bb I'm thinking about it as they are usually AA and I play based on reads.

      Vs the CO you're happy to get it in pre and punish his weak range :s_biggrin:

      with aces you can maybe consider slowplaying but all the other strong hands you want to isolate shove yourself to make sure you´re hu against MP3 quite weak range and co might also call the shove with weaker hands so you don´t have to worry about postflop.
