    Pre Flop: (pot: 2.5 BB) Hero has A:club: 9:club:

    fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 16.22 BB and is all-in, fold, SB raises to 20.61 BB and is all-in, fold

    i thought there are loose guys after me and standard raise is not good so its better to shove it to steal the blinds. good shove?

    Hi sapines,

    I think it's fine. The button seems like a candidate to call us with worse aces and broadways which would be fine with me, and we should have reasonable fold equity vs. the blinds.

    I also don't mind opening for , but the button will probably call a ton and have position on us (although calling with lots of dominated hands).

    Ultimately I think either line should be profitable and certainly don't dislike the shove on a 16bb stack 4 handed, it's probably the best line short handed.
