      What happens when your opponent has such a short stack and goes all-in? Can you call with a wider range or you should fold as usual? Thanks.

      of course, let's say that you are 1000BB deep.
      unless the opponent is a spewtard it's definitely a mistake to get it in pre with anything less than AA

      the case specific answer depends on what kind of shortstack he is, if he's nitty reg shortstack you can easily find a fold, specially as he's 3betting your utg raise
      against standard maniac-fishy shortstacks you can call though, you'll find worse Ax and even total trash sometimes

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, at the best you anyways get a coinflip. :P As said in previous post that it depends on the shorty, if he really has been sitting just tight and waiting for a hand I might even just fold the hand. :) If you take him as spewtard then you can as well Call and take the flip.

      Best regards.
