I've fallen into this same situation and haven't played to long myself. It's new lessons that make players better if they learn from their mistakes. I seem to take them serious enough to keep a stable BR nowadays, but by far not good enough to think I'm a good player. lol

Posted by jessthehuman: Terrible fold - and what is more, if you were short stacked as you say, just shove pre - don't raise/call.
I agree 100%. that's basic. Anyway your 'experiment' tell us : if not your time what ever you did is wrong. If you call maybe your fullhouse or 4 of kind never come. So never hesitate when make decision in poker. how we get that condition ? a lot of train and learn ? lol

I'm sure it's been covered to death, but I'll just add my vote here.
There's exactly 3 hands on that board that have you beat, A10, KK and QQ. Given the relative stack sizes, you can be almost 100% sure you wouldn't be seeing a flop without being re-popped pre if they hold KK or QQ, that really only leaves A10. The rare instance they show up with that hand will just be a cooler, so yes odds are very much in your favor, and it's 100% a call here.
Also, given your stack size, just open ship it if you're <15bb.
