      Interesting play by BB. Not sure what he is doing. Since they are quite loose, I think it might be better to reshove, since you pretty much can't fold anyway if BB shoves. So mathematically, reshove is better than call, althought they shouldn't make too many differences.

      Hi, Shady9966.

      What do you mean by fold pre?

      Considering the combination of positions involved (steal from late position), the effective stacksizes (only 56BB) AND a loose opponent this is a no-brainer 3bet/shove.

      The smaller the effective stacks, the lighter you can go broke either pre or on the flop *when late positions are involved*.

      Nice hand.
