    Hi adikumar2010! This hand is very ironic to me because I played a very, very similar hand with 99 in the Aria Classic last Sunday. Holding 99, when I get a shorty shove from an opp playing 25% of hands (as short as they are, they could be much wider than normal), since I'm under 20BB, this is a great spot for me to 3-bet re-shove to isolate the short stack. I'm a 56-44% favorite if I can isolate the opp, I need to accumulate chips and this is a perfect spot to try to. Also, a standard 3-bet is basically going to pot-commit me anyway, so I want to shove first and put the pressure on the opps, not to flat and have to make a very tough decision on the flop, OOP and most likely facing 2 overs. I lost a $100 bounty flip in mine, hopefully the odds held if you shoved, as you're ahead of the opp's range. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Yes I did exactly the same. I was wondering with what lowest hands should I be shoving there like 66+ & AQ+ and with what hands I can flat there maybe AJ, KQ, etc. (Exception being AA KK, to invite over-calls which I can just smooth call and set a trap).

        I'm either shoving or folding there, as I'm too short to flat.... so I'm shoving hands that are a favorite against the opp's range and folding everything else.

        Flatting this short is a huge leak of chips, as I'll be OOP and then have no clue what to do the 2/3 of the time that I miss the flop. Flatting here would fall into fancy play syndrome, that I want to avoid.

        P.S. calling there screams AA or KK, so if you do that, it turns your hand face up.
