      Well it depends on your 3betting range, if villains assuem you areo nly 3betting AAxx they you are fairly easy to play against psotflop, after limper and isoraise i would 3bet this and make a conti bet on the flop of around 2/3 of pot. If he calls you need to be careful if he raises you are done with your hand on such flop.
      But i still think its better to 3bet it and get it HU even oop, but thats my style as i prefer to play more on agressive side.

      yep, forgot to mention your SPR here makes your 3betting here more profitable. Lower your stack to pot ratio the better is to get as much as money as possible preflop in the pot when OOP.

      Don't do this ever in a 3-bet pot with AA**.

      EDIT: nevermind, he did not see stack size :)

      Ofc go broke BUT EVEN BETTER - buy in full and have auto top-up on.

      didnt see he was short first time i wrote that.
      But i think bet/fold is okay if stacks are 100b each? Or am i just playing it horribly wrong in 3bet pots?

      I actually play w 40bb because I am so short of money. Would it be better to play 1 table w full-stack rather than 3 medium stacks?

      I think playing shortstacked in Omaha increases variance alot because you just have to go broke in more marginal spots due to stack-pot-ratio PLUS opponents call small all-ins lighter.
