      Hello,

      last hand I am curious about today. Shortstack on UTG just limped, should I have folded when he re-raised? Based on SSS I should go all-in with JJ with ration less then 4:1.

      Hi funktor,

      this is a somehow special spot. UTG limper who min-raraises you that way often indicates a monster. But it can also mean some very weak player trying to make some kind of 'move' on you. Here I'm always shoving without any reads and making a not if he shows up something like KK or AA. Than I'm a bi more carefull later on.

      But without reads it's a clear push.
