Button facing small jam

Have been running this spot in HRC for a while and cannot come up with a good range for flatting or shoving in this spot. V is on a micro stack @2bb, but we have a very limited # of hands on the blinds. Real time I folded as I did not want to call and be put in a tough spot by BB in particular. Noteworthy is that I had been seeing some cards lately leading to my stats appearing aggressive at 36/29/14 over the last few orbits. Any input on what a flatting vs jamming raise would be here?

PokerStars - 100/200 Ante 20 NL - Holdem - 8 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

SB: 26.17 BB
BB: 12.29 BB
UTG: 6.03 BB
UTG+1: 15.15 BB
MP: 18.09 BB
MP+1: 10.91 BB
CO: 4.24 BB
Hero (BTN): 18.13 BB

8 players post ante of 0.1 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 2.3 BB) Hero has Q J

fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to 4.14 BB and is all-in, fold, fold, BB calls 3.14 BB

Re: Button facing small jam

my range would be
KJo+, ATo+, QTs+, KTs+, A5s+, 55+ (based on my nash ranges)

I'm always shoving

Re: Button facing small jam

I'm easy folding here, obviously shoving is better than flatting, but I'm not really in love with rejamming. If it is a PKO tournament I might see a reason to rejam

Re: Button facing small jam

yes wouldn't have a flatting range and wouldn't consider jamming with this hand maybe KQ is a jam

You can go a bit wider. Let me expand it a bit. KJo+/QJs+/A8o+/A2s+/55+ seems good. The 4bb shove can be like 74s here. We certainly want to treat it kinda like dead money and isolate it with raw equity hands (Ax/Kx etc).

Re: Button facing small jam

Kjo feels fine but even qjs feels too wide to me. Plus we have a cover stack behind us and one that could cripple us. Just me though, I dont actually know correct reshoving ranges.

Re: Button facing small jam

QJs would be the bottom of our Qxs hands and would mostly be that we block JJ/QQ preflop for most of their calling range when we jam. Plus when called we can still flip or have live cards. I'd rather jam QJs than A8o tho.
