    ok, don't punish me for this... i don't have reads on the players - new to the table... except that they are from spain and mexico... in my experience generally wild players. So I range button on a lot of hands probably top 40%. The small blind, on most pairs 55+, A10+, KQ+

    It was a very close jam, and a clod 4 bet jam looks super strong...
    button is a losing player, small blind however is a very good player. so he may realise is a great spot for a 3bet and be doing it light...

    M of ten = all in.

    possible exception is close to the bubble and many more players much shorter than you.

    In this hand, I see the SB as squeezing the button's blind steel attempt.
    This is a possible triple up situation. Unless you are on the bubble where they may just check it down, further action could eliminate some one who might beat you by the river.

      Especially if you think 1 of them will drop (so hopefully worst case you're in a coin flip), then I like pushing it here. Button could be raising with a pretty wide range and I think you're right... SB senses a steal opportunity.

      The only way I wouldn't push is if you're right near the bubble or a big pay level jump.

        I think I definitely owe myself a slap in the face for the fold which I did... it was on the bubble.

        I used the excuse that I don't know the players - I looked them up after the hand. Regardless, its 3 handed, 10 10 is a monster and my M=10.

        ahhh.... why did I fold.
