      Hello Royaltramp,

      Pretty standard against his stack. Nice hand! You could also bet smaller on flop since he has such a small stack, I using such a bet size also for bluffs, if I am against a smaller stack. Sometimes you might even just Check/Call there and if he checks behind you just Bet it in, since he will have hard time Calling the bet on flop on such board but very likely to do so since he doesn't have that big stack.

      Best regards.
