It's $5.50 Red Spade Open satellite with 10mins blind level and 1500 starting stack. So in between turbo and slow games.

What should I take of this stupid shove can I call it?

And is my preflop 3-bet size good?

Hi adi,

With a stack to pot ratio of 1 I would give him the call. A lot of players will tend to check/shove an ace to get a c-bet out of you (or check/call fearing AK), so while he can have an ace with this action, I think we run into plenty of flush draws and desperation/silly plays with smaller pockets to be comfortable calling off in a large pot.
