      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J:club: , J:diamond:
      Hero raises to $1,00, MP3 raises to $6,22 (All-In), 2 folds, SB calls $6,12, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($13,69) 3:club: , 2:diamond: , 6:heart:
      Turn: ($13,69) 7:club:
      River: ($13,69) K:heart:


      Final Pot: $13,69

      don't know really what should I do here. I mean, if I call and there's overcard on flop I really have no idea where I'm at and the pot is really big. If I raise all-in preflop here, it might be that I don't have the best hand here or it's a coinflip, so can I fold it or is it too weak? with QQ I guess I could move all-in preflop? how about AK?

      edit* don't know why the stacks didn't show up but SB had my stack covered here.

      I would think that the short stack has something, if he is a true short stack. He reraises you all-in, which means QQ+, AK, AKs. With SB willing to commit as well, JJ starts to look pretty sick in my opinion. Nice fold.

      actually on this limit SH shortstacks are really really bad. like this one who went all-in with 33. I probably would've called it if SB didn't do it. Shortstack / midstacks pretty much always limp/calls with AA/KK/AK, atleast from what I've seen.

      Hi degnic!

      I think that you are up against an overpair or AK, AQ in most cases which means that in the best case you have a coinflip. The small stack even might have a worse hand but SB flat called the all-in knowing that you raised and are still in the hand. That shows a lot of strength imo. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
