      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BB): $11.96
      UTG: $3.58
      UTG+1: $9.53
      MP: $10.00
      MP+1: $2.85
      LP: $4.40
      CO: $3.35
      BTN: $11.05
      SB: $3.20

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:heart: J:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to $0.25, Hero raises to $11.96 and is all-in, fold

      Hero wins $0.50

      This is an experimental hand with a question:

      11-11-4 - 397h, PFR 13% fBlinds, 42% steal
      What we have here, is a probable steal. Now, I can go two ways:
      a) 3bet to $1 and call AI, if SB ships. I think that I still might be ahead of many hands vs his range or coinflipping vs smaller pockets.
      b) or 3bet shove as I did? Then I get less calls and from a bit stronger hands.

      Is conventional 3bet better or we can ship it here as well, since hero presumably does it for value and calling AI anyway?

      Hello faronel,

      I'd still make a small 3bet to let him ship with worse. If he calls here the hands will be mainly better ones if he is reasonable opponent. You can't balance your bluffs with the shove and don't give you even room to 3bet normally with loose range.

      Best Regards.
