      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $9.25
      MP2:
      $10.00

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:spade: , Q:heart:
      Hero raises to $2.00, MP2 raises to $5.00, 5 folds, Hero raises to $9.25 (All-In), MP2 calls $4.25.

      Final Pot: $19.25

      - My initial stats suggest he may be a short stacker based on the vp$ip and pfr but his strange minraise is not a short stack move. Do I have the equity to put him all in here or should I fold?

      With QQ it's an easy push. If he is holding a monster, note his 3betting pattern down.

      Hi Phil,

      Your openraise range is AQ+,99+ so he 3bets with >50% Equity range which is QQ+,AKs+ basically but assume JJ+,AK+

      Then considering your equity, one sees you are well above your break even equity so I ship it in with QQ!

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      on 50NL and lower, yes :) 100NL and up, I take my own raise 1st into consideration (reverse thinking)

      Wait, I didn't get the difference. In both limits you do reverse thinking, considering your opponents >50% eq range against your opening range. Raise 1st = opening range. Please explain :D

      I think he means his own stat of raise 1st in.

      Nl100+ SS players are looking at your stats whilst Nl50 and lower SSplayers tend to just think Oh he is a shortie -> ''looks at a random chart, oh I can 3bet with this''
