It's Saturday Micro $3.30, 25k Gtd with 15mins blind level.

I want to shove into OLD PSO member stix144 (who I think got banned from PSO), so can I do it with this hand easily?

Coz he will most probably call as he is short stack and he knows I will be shoving 60% hands there.

Clear shove, you're even ahead of his calling range

Hi Adi,

IDK what his perception of your shoving range will be, but regardless, vs. a 10bb stack I will snap set him all in, A3s is plenty good enough. He will have a lot of hands he'll have to fold, and our hand plays well enough when called. For instance if he calls us off with 1/3rd of starting hands, then we pick up the blinds/antes 67% of the time, and we are only a slight dog (52/48) vs. a calling range. Very +EV spot for us. If he tightens up, our hand equity goes down when called, but we get the dead money without a fight more often... if he loosens up, less freebees, but better hand equity when called. We can't really go wrong in this spot with a set him all in strategy for our A3s.
