No serious analysis here but I wanted to defend my bb and play.

Just looking at the short stack is that a 30bb shove? Is that a 40bb re-shove then I realised it's not 10NL.

I just fold and post a >>random hand<< in the new short stack 25NL game.

I am happy really, but this hand just annoys me. Sorry guys it's a brain leak in my game I can't fix.

Let me play a flop.

Hey Forrest

Easy fold for sure. I think your calling range here should actually be pretty tight QQ+ AK for sure and maybe not too much more than this. The initial shove can be a wide range but the shove behind has to be strong to very strong. For that reason we need to tighten up.

Against the initial shove 99+ can definitely be fine for pairs.

As far as not seeing a flop, I'll take however they want to give the money. And the initial shover wants to give you some money
