What you think is the best range to shove when short stack, having around 9 to 13bbs. Axs, midlle and low pairs, suited conectors and even Kxs, Qxs ? (Disconsider hands like AA, KK, AK ...)
I think the best are KK AA AK you should definetly shove with that hands i dnt prefer showing with low pairs cuz there is big possibility that the board showes A or K but QQ its ok to shove with. I also dnt shove with suited connectors cuz there is a big possibility that you hit nothing
In fact you really need to double your stack but it's a better idea shove with this hands in final positions. If you had a big stack playing after you, he will call with medium hands, and you put your destiny in a call flip. But if the players after you are very tight, I think it's better try to steal the pot with the shove.
This question depends on far too many factors to answer it fully.
How many players are at the table? Is it full ring or 6-max?
What's our position? Are we UTG or on the button?
How frequently are the blinds increasing?
Are we near a money bubble so ICM is at play?
Who's blinds are we attempting to steal? Super-short stacks will be priced in to call, and very large stacks may call simply because they can afford it.
Yes these are great questions. Always knowing a target with your bet is great but also when at 9-13 big blinds my range for shoving from any position is greatly widened, i'll shove from any spot, depending on bubble/icm, with A9o+, KJs+,QJs and pairs 88+.
