      his squeeze sizing looks super weird, but maybe 66 is still too weak with no feq?

      Hey Tomaloc,

      3bet sizing suggests villain wants to get all-in and is never folding. Typically you will have fold-equity if you shove with PP's.

      Villain's shoving range may be pretty light when he has <40bb, and you are going to be flipping vs him a decent amount, but not enough so that I like a call. Any higher pair has you crushed + you haven't invested that much in the pot so far.

      this is the main point imo, he could probably still do this with 77-JJ.

      bottom of "gambling range", TT? ofc it's ok to just fold pretty much our entire range here but i don't mind increasing variance sometimes. :P

      History is important here. Perhaps villain likes to shove a lot below 50bb since he is evidently not the type to rebuy. So it depends if you've seen him shove already and with which hands - if he's been shoving wide you should obviously expand your continuing range, maybe to even include hands like 66.

      With no real info on his shoving tendencies I'd probably stick to something around TT+/AQ+ vs a 40bb stack. Maybe even a little tighter since we likely have no fold equity and villain does not look like a regular short-stacker.
