      Hero (SB): $7.94 (198.5 bb)
      BB: $1 (25 bb)
      UTG: $7.29 (182.3 bb)
      MP: $0.92 (23 bb)
      CO: $5.26 (131.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 9
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.12, 4 folds

      Results: $0.10 pot
      MP mucked and won $0.10 ($0.06 net)

      Our opponent is a shortstack with the following stats:
      VP/PFR/AF/3bt/hands 17/17/2.0/11.1/47

      I don't have any experience dealing with shortstacks. I decided to fold.

      Obviously we can't exactly call his raises, which means we have to raise and go broke, probably. What range should we do this with?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Against his stack I doubt that it's even going to be a huge mistake to just 3bet and go broke with 99. Most likely we could even consider doing it with AK and maybe even looser depending on the opponent PFR.

      Best Regards.
