      Pretty much had no real grasp of this hand while I played it. Should I have raised preflop? Was raise on flop correct? I'm pot commited to the short stacks shove, at least I don't think I can get away there...

      Hello ExMagnusxL,

      Preflop: Nah, I wouldn't raise it here without good reason, since I don't plan to go broke with my hand, therefore I'd rather prefer to Call it and play postflop.

      As played
      Flop: Raising doesn't make sense here at all, we likely will get Called only by a better hand, therefore I might as well consider just Calling and reevaluating further streets. As played I am not going to fold against MP1 stack.

      Best regards.
