      I've noticed that you've posted 2 hands regarding pre-flop All In situations against small stacks. Here's how I play them.

      A person with a short stack is either a bad player or very nitty and playing short stack strategy. If he is a bad player then I think QQ, JJ should be fine for an All In call but if he is nitty and playing short-stack then he's gonna go all in with hands like AA,KK,QQ,JJ,AK. So,

             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     63.42%  61.85%   1.57% { JJ+, AKs, AKo }
      BU     36.58%  35.02%   1.57% { JJ }

             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     52.63%  51.05%   1.58% { JJ+, AKs, AKo }
      BU     47.37%  45.79%   1.58% { QQ }

      I usually call with QQ+. But this is assuming that they are very nitty and I know they are playing shortstack strategy.

      By the way your opponent here doesn't have a short stack but has a mid stack.

      you can fold there JJ, but QQ is too strong to fold against midstacks, so I think it is easy shove for value, you should see enough times AQ, JJ, AK to make call profitable

      best regards,
