      Hello, I have some questions about Shorthanded situations:


      a) Do we play hands like AJ, KJ, KQ vs Small Stacks IP if he opens?

      b)Do we Call PP's OOP (22-99) if we have 20x amount he raises, if he's tight?

      c) Supposed we're at a recreative table with some TAG's. We decide to limp 22-99 and one of the TAG's iso-raises. Do we call if we have 20x amount he raises (both IP and OOP)?

      a) who is he ? stats ? reads ? opens from what position ? too general of a question, be more specific

      b) - when I'm in LP and there is a fish in the blinds
      - when a nit opens from UTG. His range is so strong there, that if I hit a set, I am pretty sure I will stack his overpair or TPPK hand
      - when there has been a raise, and a call in front of me.
      - when I'm in the blinds, and a LP opens, depending on his LP open % I 3bet my PP and usually get a fold. Calling PP from the blinds to a LP open is a no-no, because LP's range is weak, and even if we hit a set, we aren't likely to stack him. the only time when I call from the blinds with PP is if the opener is exploitablee has a cbet of 70% and a turn bet of 40% or something like that. In this case I float the flop and donk the turn or value-bet the river when checked-to. (very villain dependent)

      c) we don't limp.

      Depends on short stack's position (ie. range).

      If villain's tight, then 20x is enough on average.

      Very often not, OOP, vs wide range.
