      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.
