      Calling is the worst option. The pot would be 13$ and he would have 8$ left, so you will call his all in on the turn no matter what turn card turns up. The reason why it's bad to call is because if a :diamond: comes on the turn, he might give up the hand, so you loose money this way. So you have to decide on the flop if you want to go all in or shove.

      You should shove here. Your pot odds are 46,6% and even when you put your opponent on JJ,66,AJ,A6,6J you still have 46% equity. So since he might call with weaker and you dominate him if he has :diamond: :diamond: you should go all in here.

      Even if you would both have 100BB, I would put it all in againt his reraise on the flop, because this way I would create enough fold equitxy, for this to be plusEV
