      Is this a good spot to get the money in given my short stack and pot odds? I didn't think I was ahead but felt pot odds might still make it +EV?

      Hey Tim,

      I actually think you don't get good enough pot odds here, despite the reduced stack. You'll probably be facing JJ+ AK , against which your AJo is pretty dead, 25% eq only, and you don't get 4:1 pot odds here.

      Hello Tim64,

      even if you're getting good odds to push and need only 23,5 equity I don't think you have it against two tight opponents. MP3 could have a standard fullring reraise range of AK/JJ+ and CO doesn't look like a player who would cold call a 3-bet so I would say he's trapping with some very strong hand. And against such range you get 15-17 equity. AJ is a fold here despite the good odds.
