      Think a shove pre flop might be better here as your raise size pre flop is basically committing you to the pot on the flop as either opponent would only have less than 1/2 pot size bet left.

      Obviously the CO played the hand badly so try not to be that guy :f_biggrin:

      Hello musabasjoo,

      Sometimes as well you could slow-play them, for example Call and let MP2 shove or anything like that (for the given reason that they aren't full stacked, and I expect to get shoved pretty often from MP2 if he has some kind of hand even with KQ). But as played I'd rather just shove it preflop since their stacks ain't that big and we have to ship it on any flop anyways.

      Best regards.
