Hey Espada_Nu.4

I agree with you that calling would be the worst option for us because of our awkward stack sizes, as well as players behind us with similar 3bet shove/squeeze stack sizes.
Now this is very close because villain is raising from early position but I would get it in with a guy that's playing 20/18, he does have a small fold to 3bet% but if we don't have at least 10 instances of how he reacts to 3bets then this stat doesn't tell us very much.

We do have fold equity and villain 4 can call us with worse hands than 1010 so I like getting it in, especially now that there are ante's. Shipping it with 99+ and AQ+ would seem about right here imo.

Cheers, Chris.
