i get all in from the button. i had only small information about my opponent. I was thinking that he is stealing the blinds, so my KJo looked nice hand for me to call his shove. I had left only about 7 BB.

I am wondering if i made a good disision or not?

Hi Tommy nolimt!

With about 6BB in front of me in the SB, I get a button shove. The read that the opp could easily be on a steal helps my decision here and is a factor in my call here. Since I know they're willing to steal, they will be on a tighter range and at this few of blinds, if the opp is shoving wider, I want to be calling a bit wider too.

Here's about the range that I would be looking to call this bet with. 22+, Ax+, K4s+, K9o+, Q8s+, QTo, J8s+, JTo, T9s

KJo is well within this range, so I'm calling. Unfortunately, the opp got lucky, but calling is a +EV play and I was a 2-1 favorite when the chips went in.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
