three-handed and i make top pair but am thinking twice about the shove. tbh i don't think i would of gotten away from this one if i called all the way down. was the check-shove a bad move?

no problem with the check/shove. Three handed with top pair, being aces, you gotta assume you're ahead.

Rough spot really.

Cannot "blame" you for calling into the pot at the 100/200 level with any suited Ace 3 handed.

Cannot really blame you for calling (had you called him) after you hit your ace.

Cannot really blame you for shoving after hitting the ace either...

Would REALLY help to have info on the Villain's stack size though.

Can he call your shove with LESS than your holding? He'd need a pretty big stack to do so.

Fact is, I think you are lacking all the info here to really make it pretty clear this shove by you was "necessary".

No matter what, you are semi-short with aobut 18 BB, and you did hit about what you can "expect" from calling a raise with a rag Ace. So whether or not this shove was "good" purely devolves into a question of "reads", and stack sizes.

No matter what, there are WORSE things you could do.

we had similar stack sizes. was left with about two big blinds after the hand. dude had been continuation betting me several times during the game so when i hit the ace, i checked to let him bet at it - my read was that he was doing that again and wouldn't call the shove. guess i could chalk it up to bad timing....3 handed, i don't think i was going to get away from this one.
