      Dead money makes this situation confusing. Can someone tell me if this analysis is correct?
      He is Short Stack player so assume his range to be 77+, AT+, QJs+.
      My equity against this range with JQo is 35%.
      So I have 35% chance to win $1.95 and 65% chance to lose $1.35.
      EV(push) = - $0.19.
      EV(fold) = - $0.10.
      Should have stayed out?

      Any further insights are of course welcomed!

      I think his range is tighter, smt like TT+, AJ+, KQ
      I wouldn´t 3-bet pf, since your hand isn´t that good and once you get re-raised you have to call because of the pot odds.
      I´d just call pf getting that odds.
      If you re-raise and shortstack shows then you have to call because of your pot odds, but you should never want to put yourself into that situation where you´re üpto committed and you know that you´re behind.
