      Hello fulja,

      Against such a small stack I don't mind such play but the question is if he is going to Call with a lot worse there? But ye, most of the cases I am shipping my money directly there because of his stack, so raise to $3.20 directly. Straight against ya? 56 :O

      Best regards.

      Nope, no straight, he had TT. I was thinking of making a call but decided to ship it in.

      How would you play it if villain was a fullstack is actually what I wanted to ask. Thanks for your input.

      Against some passive fullstack villain you could even consider just Calling there but against some aggressive one you can easily raise for value, it's all depending on villain, who is capable bluffbetting on river or even with weaker hand and who ain't. Not many will Call your raise there anyways.
