      MP player is TAG 25/22/6,5 3bet/60 hands (annonymus table)
      others are pretty loose playing 35-40 passivlly

      so i think MP only calling with low pocket pairs so on flop i'm afraid only 55 and he folding all rest. And short stack is pushing if he connected with flop anyhow, so i just call and hope MP folds. So good call or overplay?

      Hi Tombic,

      Considering that BTN is short I don't like our squeeze as much since you are comitting vs him (if he shoves preflop).

      As played both MP and BTN can have plenty of Ax hands and we don't even have a redraw. I think that we got lucky here that he shoved the Kx hand and since we have MP still left to act (that ocassionally may have a hand) I would just ck/fold.

      On the other hand you could bet/fold 4.6 and go with the hand vs BTN. When we bet we can expect BTN to not fold Kx/draws and MP won't make moves with a short stack behind.
