      I believe I played this one correct, but I have a question about playing with smaller short stack. And in particular when and which hands are more profitable to just shove directly instead of making normal raise preflop?

      Until NL100 I played with FTP's feature of autorebuy to 20BB, but now I'm slowly adopting to play with shorter stack, because I think it's more profitable and easier to play, specially in steals/resteals.

      Hi Burek2000

      Adopting to shorter stack >nl50 is a good option, i am doing the same way,look at the Xarrys advanced SSS posts...With 3+ limpers with <15BB i am going all-in preflop usually.

      In your case you played it well, maybe with A on the board, board looks dangereous, so maybe i would also chech flop and see what will happened, c-bet here is not an option, C/F or push...

      b/f flop villain is not aggro and the board is not super drawy so easy b/f safe the money no worth hand then a fd or an ace will call your push. so you turn your hand into a bluff
