      Would you go AI with short stack player? Usually, their range is wide(Give them a range of TT+, AK) and I think I'm ahead most of the time.

      Howdy,

      Yeap, this is fine play - but you should 4bet enough to cover his stack. He will often have worse pp or hand like AQ, so it doesn't matter if you see AA/KK there time after time. Plus we can't call because all players involved in hand have short stacks and we really don't wanna see random flop w/ overcards on it.

      Good luck!
