      $2,00
      Hero:

      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with J:spade: , J:heart:
      Hero raises to $0,40, 7 folds, BB raises to $2,00 (All-In), Hero calls $1,60 (All-In).

      Flop: ($4,05) 8:spade: , 9:spade: , 4:club:
      Turn: ($4,05) 8:diamond:
      River: ($4,05) 7:club: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4,05

      I felt a pain in my heart after giving that call.
      Considering the low limit I'm playing, does a vilain knows that after a EP raise from a SSS player the push all-in is EV+ only w KK+?

      The lower the limit, the worse the players. So don't worry, stick to the basic SSS which tells you to push JJ against a re-raise.

      NH!

      If you have a read that he is a Pokerstrategy shortstack player, play accordingly to the ''how to play against another shortstack player'' reversed.

      This means that you have to think about BB's 3bet against your UTG raise. meaning that he only goes all-in with KK+

      If you dont have this read, shoving JJ is never wrong here but I recommend watching your opponents and makinga s much notes as possible to prevent this dilemma.
