      Hi.

      Just wondering how good my hand needs to be here.
      My opponent had shoved from the sb 3 times in a row when I had been first in from various positions, and each time I folded.
      I had a tight image, so guessed he thought I was playing weak, but he was also shortstacked. I guess I have to fight back eventually, but how and when?

      Hello Iolar,

      If you have seen him shoving like 3 hands in row in previous hand, then you can easily Call there with AQ, also he is a shorty. I guess I'd Call something like 99+, AQ+, maybe even looser if I have even better reads on him.

      Best regards.
