      I have a problem dealing with shortstackers. I know this had is played wrong but my question is do I have to call the min 3bet because of the odds but on the same time i can win much so is fold the correct options against shortstack regulars with 10 10?Should I also fold jj or AQs? please help(MP3=16/12);

      This all depends on your reads on the shortstackers tbh, if you feel they are 3betting a very wide range you can shove here for value. However, if they're nits and only 3bet a real value range of JJ+ and AK, then you should just fold to the minraise and forget about it :)
