      Hi all,

      wondering about this hand. Only have 20 hands on villian, but he's been opening 25% from EP. Else no reads.

      Pre: Not sure if 3-bet or if I should jsut shove with 25 BB. Thinking a shove allows villian to play perfectly: fold all apart from AA-QQ. If 4-bet plan is to fold.

      Flop: Nice flop for me, as he shouldn't have many 9s in his range, plus dry board and I don't want to see overcards, thus c-bet. Now, his shove I give him AA-JJ and AK, maybe AQ. Against that I have >33% and get odds of 2.9:1. Easy call or easy fold?

      We are playing 23,7bb effective and we are playing out of position post-flop with big antes in game. I would play it easy and just shove pre-flop. Then you don’t need to play a big pot out of position with your small stack.

      As played the flop is tricky, because why he would stack of with ace high here. I expect this board don’t hit his range at all, but he could have an over pair he’s slow playing pre-flop with. Otherwise his line makes no sense at all for me and I would make an easy fold.
