I think so too. As with everything in poker it's player and situation dependant, but I think it's the kind of stack where we still have quite a few plays available and as mentioned before, we can exploit those players who don't think we have room to 3bet fold. Especially given the min raise sizes in the modern game! Say utg opens for 2x the bb with 25bb's effective whom we know is a decent player who knows he can open wider utg with this stack size to take down the blinds and ante's, our hud tells
us he's only 3 betting 5-10% of his opening range and folding at least 90% of the time to 3bets, this is a great spot if we're 25-35bb's. Say we wake up with 76 suited on the button with 25bb's we 3 bet in position to 5bb's if he shoves we can happily fold with 20bb's and it's back to finding a resteal spot. No big loss!! But if we take down a few of these pots we're well on our way back to a decent 4bet shove stack with a ton of fold equity.
