I'm still learning the game, so these are probably very basic situations (given stack sizes). Still, wanted to run it by folks to make sure I'm not making errors in these quasi-short stacking kind of spots.
And maybe the more general question is, when do you simply over call with a hand (or what types of hands) in similar spots vs. shipping it in when relatively shallow?
Hero ($165 and everyone covers) opens EP with JdTs9d7h to $8. MP calls, HJ raises to 35 and gets cold called by CO, BT, SB and BB. Hero shoves...
Hero ($150 and everyone covers) in MP with JcJdTc9s. $5 straddle is on. 3 limpers in front of me, I limp as do a couple folks behind. Straddle makes it $40 and gets 3 callers in front of me. Hero ships.
