      I think going broke on the flop is fine, but will yake note of what he had.

      From my experience limp/3bet from early positions is usualy sign of AA or sometimes KK. It is a min3bet but because of his stack you can't even call for set value, so I would fold preflop.

      As played, he bets pot on flop and now I'm even more sure we're beat, so no reason to invest any more money.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Preflop: Doesn't really make sense to just Call here actually, since we can't really set mine against his stack. Therefore I'd rather take this as a very strong line, oftentimes limp/raise is a very strong hang. But with some kind of reads that he has done such moves earlier and has wider range then I'd just ship it preflop.

      As played
      Flop: As he bets pot now, I don't think that he is doing that with worse, rather just give it up.

      Best regards.

      Problem is that the villain stack is way too smallish. :) We are getting like 13:1 the odds only, of course he might go broke there with anything and it could be doable but I'd rather just avoid difficult situations where we have like the mid-pair or anything like that and then trying to ship it. Rather just ship it preflop against his stack if anything at all.
