Folding is out of the question. Calling is meh because half the deck scares you. Raising is kind of strange because you are committed anyway against a villain with a 19xBB stack.

That leaves us with a shove.

You can't be serious!?

You do know that 60-70% of the time there will be face card on the flop? That's the exact reason why re-rerasing PF is the way to go .. you can't call PF and fold on 70% of the flops with stacks that shallow.

And why wouldn't you give villain a chance to c-bet in the event of all low cards on the flop? You don't get JJ+ to fold anyway but you get every other hand to put at least another bet in.

Hero calls. Flop comes Kxx rainbow. Hero checks, villain c-bets t800. Pot is now at t2000 and villain has t1700 left. Hero...?

This is what happens 60-70% of the time. Even if villain only has 99 or 2 unpaired high cards.

There is NO poker to be played postflop. Hero is going to hate almost every flop, villain always c-bets and after that our fold equity is zero.

If stacks were deeper, this would be a call .. but not against a 18xBB stack.

I figured he had a hand like 88-QQ, AK, AQ, but most likely 88-QQ since he bet so big. I pushed to avoid any tough decision and he had AK. TT>AK.

From his perspective (if you were villian) how much do you raise preflop? I've started raising 2.5bb with hands like this (AK, AQ, 99-jj) and have done better than jacking up the pot since a cbet wont commit me when someone comes over the top and the flop isnt great.
