So their 3-Bet range should be JJ+ and AK.

And so what I've learned via the various software that when you open to $0.75 or $1 and they push all-in you need 40%-42.5% equity. But vs their range AKo is about 39% and AKs is about 43%.

Should we be really folding AKo vs Short Stacker 3-Bet's?

Should we be really taking a 1%-3% edge with AKs?
(Maybe somebody could direct me to a past thread about should we take very small edges discussion.)

so we have a 3%ROI with AKo, and 11%ROI with AKs. def a call

Also, the second you can add in ANY amount of variation (even a sneeze of AQ), this is an even snappier call. thin edges maybe thin, but its still +EV
