I struggle with live play. No surprise there as I seldom get a chance to play live, less than once a month. I also struggle with assigning unknowns ranges in the types of situations like this.
My default range I'd assign is 99+, AK, AQs, so barring other info, I'd fold here. We're behind any pair, crushed by A-A, K-K, pushing v. AK, and ahead of AQs. Obviously Jilly, Duggs, and probably many others are assigning different ranges to the unknown relative short-stacker in situations like this.
I'd be interested in knowing what range or types of ranges those who would call unknown villain's EP pre-flop shove put him on. Anyone? Also, why would you assign him a range we are ahead of (experience? instinct? etc. etc).
