      SB showed 8 T and won $2.67 ($1.56 net)
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$1.11 net)

      No info on both players.

      They were both short stacks, and with a bet on the flop I would have commited myself (and I'm in a sandwich), when the flop hits a lot of their range, especially the suited stuff which they like to play a lot.
      Therefore I decide for a check and re-evaluation on the river.
      Another drawy card comes, so I decide to go for pot control.

      Usually I insta-shove against such short stacks, but being in a sandwich of 2 players that have bit less than half a stack (not super short), with no hands on them, on such a board didn't make me so happy, and wasn't sure if it was worth it shoving in or not.
      Thinking about it twice probably yes huh?

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Rather still CB the flop whilst you could easily be ahead and need to protect your hand.

      Best Regards.

      Thx!

      If one of them shoves the flop after my bet (if I CBet the flop) do I call? (yes, right?)
      If they both call the flop, are there cards that should make me fold?
      If yes, which ones?

      Of course we Call it off if someone of them shoves vs their stacks.

      Try to guess what cards are bad for us, instead me telling you. :P
