      On the flop he bets 3BB so I think he has something weak and I raise. Now he 3bets, it looks strong. I have to be around 1/5 of the time ahead to call profitably. He might be pushing with draws, 66, 77 also so this is a call I think.

      Is there a way I could play it differently? I don't like to call his donl bet, I will not know where I am at. I don't like to fold because his bet is so small. I could 3bet smaller and if he 4bet the fold. But then he has good odds to call my 3bet with OESDs.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop: Since his stack is so small you could easily consider just limping in, you don't have to always raise against such small stacks and put yourself into hard spot on flop.

      As played
      Flop: I would often just give him respect since he has such a small stack I don't really often expect him to donk out with very weak hand, likely better than ours. Don't feel like trying to overplay shorty.

      Best regards.
