        It doesn't look like you did much wrong tbh. Did you have any reads on the two players all in? The shove with the 97 seems pretty loose, and the reshove with the KK seems like a standard play.

        Calling off with your QQ is fine here against a short stack shove then a reshove. The second shove could have a wider range of reshoving hands here, such as 9s-AA, AKs, AKo, so a lot of the time you would be ahead or flipping. In this kind of situation you need to look at it as would you do the same thing in their shoes, would you shove KK here? If so eventually the tables will turn and you will be on the winning side of that play. AA vs KK, KK vs QQ, these hands balance themselves in the long run.

          Hi staxx,

          No reads... absent reads about the only thing I'd do differently here is reshove over the short stack's all in. But once Muj puts you the rest of the way in, I'm good with stacking QQ here.

          If Muj were a tight/conservative player, I'd consider folding the QQ to the SB's shove as I'd expect Muj's 3-betting range from out of position vs. a MP open to be very tight. Without any reads though getting stacks in is fine imo.
