      Villian is 42/13/37 after 52 hands.
      I played it badly but basically I didn't know what to do on flop. He is so short that I can't really fold here when he jam but I think that my cbet is really bad here.
      What would you play here?? C/F flop C/shove maybe (he is never calling/raising with worse but he might bet it like AQ/KQ/KJ)???
      Any better options?? Maybe I should just call pre cause efective stacks are short (ąround 60bb) and try to play it postflop even OOP??

      Agree that bet/fold isnt an option on the flop - since who knows what hes shoving here and we almost always get the eQuity to call it off.

      So its bet/call or ch/f imo. I think bet/call is fine with these stack sizes. If we had position, we could ch/b but oop our options are limited.

      I still 3b pre - regardless of stack sizes. 50bb stack doesnt make your hand easier to play oop. Just raise it up and let him call with worse.

      If you bet more than 3$ I think you have to call shove, since he would very likely also shove worse hands than pairs. So if you bet 4$ I like b/c
      I´d probably b/f 2.8$ or 3$ bet, since at that point don´t feel that committed and consider on the turn card (if it is J or higher, then likely shove) either put him all-in or c/f

      Against most pairs you have your overcards, and against bluffs you're ahead (because you only represent an overpair here, so his push might as well be a bluff from a midstack fish). I think you get the right odds to call the shove here.
