      I pushed because I think he was a bad short stack.

      Should I play this hand other way ?

      Unless you got information that he's loose you should just raise/fold or raise/call pre-flop. I think you're always gonna get it in behind against him when you 4bet.

      Hello newsat,

      Depends what kind of short-stack is he? Against some nitty ones you may even have an easily Raise/Fold as mentioned but as we decide to go broke, then likely I'd 4bet him directly all-in, so $2.

      Best regards.
