1st, dont post results, it makes peoples analysis biased because they already know what happened. Given your small stack Id say you played this fine, shoving that flop is standard with only 30x BB. Also, dont post out of turn, it may not seem like much, but it will slowly eat away at your winrate.

it's 4handed and you have top 2 in a spot where someone could easily go crazy with a pair + OESD. also you're very short (don't know why you're shortstacking anyway, but that's your own choice). shoving is completely standard. massive 3way cooler

Wait wait wait... First off, did you post a blind when you were UTG after buying into a $10 table for $3? Fail!

I'd have easily re-raised Pokergirl, but Br1ckwa11 was representing strength. I'd put him on a set (probably 4/4), and with Pokergirl's pot sized raise you're in a squeeze that could cost you all of your stack if someone has 6/3 or 6/8.

I'd have folded.

I don't think your shove is terrible though. A call would be terrible, but shoving gives you some fold equity. You have nice odds on your money in a situation where they could stack with A/7, or a slow-played over pair.

Pokergirl001 gets a fail for not leading out with 7/7.

Br1ckWa11 played it well.

SP, we're not looking for "fold equity". no better hand is ever folding in the history of ever. we're pushing because we want to get the money in before an action-killing card comes on the turn, and get called by worse, and easily can. it's 10NL, for god's sake don't overestimate these people
