      I see this hands differently because in the first one I was against a 3bet... and in the second hand I made the 3bet

      1. even if is he is short stack strategy player I'm calling the 1.1$ with AK. You pot odds are 2.09:1 ~ 32% and against his 4bet range of AK+,QQ+ you got 40% pot equity.

      2. Unless you have a read that he limps/min raises with the nuts(KK+)
      just put him all after his minraise. Those short stacks can do it with worser hands then KK+. (e.g JJ+,AQ)
