      $3.44
      MP2(Hero):
      $5.00

      BU:

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, A.
      UTG2 calls $0.04, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.2, MP3 calls $0.20, 5 folds.

      Stats(Elephant) can help you a lot in your decisions.
      vs an unknown short stack like that I would play it the same I think because the prob of him having a set < prob of him having a worse hand like Jx, 9T, sometimes slowplayed QQ, KK. On NL5 theres a lot of bad players too.
      Also if you are behind you can hit another A once in a while.

      vs a full stack and a dry board like this, it could spell trouble for you.

      He slowplayed QQ, coming against slowplay a lot. I do have PT3 stats but there's that many people playing NL5 I don't get a lot of hands on many players.

      Against a Short stack just shove to his reraise on the flop. You will be in front very often.

      Pre-flop: ok

      Flop: c-bet is ok, but just 3bet him all-in there.

      You really can't fold Aces here unless you have a 100% read which you don't. Villain is often playing TPTK here, or a smaller overpair. Either way you're ahead most of the time here so ship it!

      He did three bet him all in.

      O.o

      This play is fine, ignore the people who don't read :D

      preflop: Fine
      Flop: Good, on this dry board you wan't him to stay in the hand by placing weak bet (which you did! :D ). You basically want to induce him to bluff his short stack off or if he hit a jack. But he had Q's anyway so :P
      Well played.

      Hello,

      Flop: Bet/Shove, he is shorty so it's easy go broke.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      No he didn't... look again:
      Hero bets $0.36
      MP3 raises to $1
      [3 BET] Hero raises to $1.64
      [4 BET] MP3 calls $0.76(All-In)
      Hero calls $0.12.

      The "calls" might make it a bit confusing but it's definitely a 12c raise. Of course it makes little to no difference here, which is actually just another reason to just 3 bet to $2+.

      Was multitabling, thought the raise had him covered at a glance.
