      I think I played this hand quite badly.
      Villian is a short stacker and I have around 500hands for him.
      He 3bets from BB vs steal 23% (31).
      First I think my sizing is a leak. I should be opening less vs this guy.
      Then I think this is quite an easy call vs the 3b. Against 22+,A2s+,KTs+,QTs+,JTs,A8o+,KTo+,QTo+,JTo we have 47% and we need 43.

      If you open 3x from BTN against pro shortstackers, then only raise if you are willing to call off a push, otherwise you are donating money to them...
      Or steal 2x, which makes much less profitable for them to resteal.
      Best thing if they are on your immediate left, and everyone folds to you in the SB, I minraise 100% against them SB v BB. They cant do much, and they wont adapt to it most of the time... ;)

      Yep, I do this too.

      They can't really defend 50% and if they start to do it (which I doubt) I can easily thighten up.

      Hello kymupa,

      If you assume he is 3betting that loose then why do you open 3bb in first place? :( Then rather also have the plan of calling it off, though I'd definitely use here 2bb raise.

      Best Regards.
