      What do you make of this hand?

      No stats on villian.

      He's short stacked anyway, and I suppose he'll be going broke on worse hands, pocket pairs, maybe AK/AQ as well.

      However, if he was normal stacked, could I make the same play? Or would i just have to take that as it was on the situation and dynamics?

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Against a short-stack it's pretty easy that there is no way we are getting away from here and definitely going broke.

      But against full stack it's a bit harder, if he raises this way too then we will be in hard spot, I would likely not 3 bet against him but rather Call it and reevaluate on further streets. Although I don't think that I would get that easily away unless I know the opponent more. As you mentioned already, he may easily have even worse PPs. And on those limits people tend to go broke a lot lighter. Wouldn't be surprised to see there TT/JJ.

      Best regards.
