      CO is short. If he was really that aggro over a larger sample (20% 3bet), I would just shove over. We will just pick up the pot so often and pick up 13BB. Only risking 80BB and if we get called we probably have 35%+ equity so we risk 80 and get back 160 BB X 0.35 = 56, losing 24 on average. But if his 3b range was that wide we just pick up the pot >70%+ of the time.

      Your alternative is to call or fold. I don't like calling so much when they are short. UTG can very easily limp/reraise too which sucks for us. So I would fold if i did not shove.

      I expect MP to fold 80%+ of the time. And I expect CO to fold at least 65-70% of the time. So I think this shove could be profitable.
