      I decided to get it in vs the 3bettor because of his short stack. Did I play the hand correctly?

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Nah, not really. They could easily have a lot worse hands even there, so I'd also plan to get it in vs their stacks. Another option is just to fold directly.

      Best Regards.
