      Hi.

      Preflop: maybe u can 3b here vs the right guy. Having reads would help.

      Flop: i think we are not getting folds that often but given stack sizes and the sheer amt of equitt we have i think its fine.

      how do we play the flop if all players had 100bb effective stacks. do we just play it passively?

      we call BB 2.60 and SB jams?

      I understand we have good equity, but i think these are spots i definitely overplay it :)

      Hi.

      I think folding is possible if
      1) bb is likely to be strong (uber strong, like sets or flushes)
      2) small chance that sb is strong and being tricky/trappy.

      Actually i think i would just fold when bb shows so much strength by raising so much.

      because we basically never get paid often enough when we hit?

      And if we do hit K, we most likely only get called by flush?

      Something along those lines. Basically when villain raises so large here to 2.6 your odds on a call are pretty terrible which is why i much prefer a shove if stacks are short.

      No problem :)

      Another thing to note is that short, aggro fishes are more capable of raising huge and stacking off with one pair here which means that our pair outs may sometimes be clean vs J9/J8 and our straight outs are more often clean as well
