      Push preflop, as his ATS = 100 and his vp/pfr are very high (too bad you had only 41 hands)

      Yeah, if you think you beat his range, push as a re-steal. But you have very few hands on him for the ATS to be meaningfull at all. I'd consider folding KQ.

      Hey ukwagon,

      preflop you have only 2 options, push or fold, because calling OOP with short stack is really bad and will lead you into marginal spots postflop.

      Even after only 41 hands this villain looks fishy enough to push KQs against his CO openraising range. Although I would prefer larger sample size, KQs is pushable against 20% ATS and since villain has 22 PFR he for sure has 20%+ ATS. So, push preflop.

      As played, I'm folding flop, you only have GS and 2 overcards and your outs are probably not clean because of FD possibility.

      Regards,
