      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $5,08
      Hero:
      $10,02

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:spade: , K:diamond:
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0,30, 2 folds, SB raises to $1,10, BB folds, Hero calls $0,80.

      Flop: ($2,30) T:heart: , 8:spade: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      SB raises $3,98 (All-In), Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $2,30

      Better to shove it while still being IP? My plan is to call his shove if I hit my ace or king. OOP instant shove preflop, no questions about that.

      Hello ragney,

      Yeah, better shove or fold preflop, you don't hit often enough to make such Calls profitable. If his 3bet is more tighter on then you might even consider folding. Otherwise if bigger, then shove is fine.

      Best regards.
