I cannot believe this guy called me. OK my move was not great but what was he thinking to call with 60% of his chips?

A few minutes earlier I bought the blinds by going all-in with 3 3, showing my hand. Maybe he thought I had crap again.

How would you have played A Q as the short stack here?

But they were SOOOTED!

Why the all-in instead of a normal raise. AQ is a hand you welcome callers with and you're not that short (getting real close though).

This is the exact reason you do not show your hand unless you go to showdown.
You open yourself up for badbeats when you show your hand.
As played, being 3-handed a shove was just fine and you were just unlucky.

He's well below 10bbs, this is a standard shove.

Tex - read the HA posting guidelines, specifically the part about not posting the results (especially in the title :rolleyes:).
