      Hello Alex,

      Well being ''shortstacked'' doesn't mean he is bad. PokerStrategy provides the MSS & SSS strategy designed to play with a shortstack. So if you think that you can get it in here with a marginal holding because he is so short, well then that strategy works.

      So what I am trying to say here that one should just fold the flop here. I do not think he is (semi-) bluffing often on the Flop so you are either up against a flushdraw+2overcards, Toppair or an overpair

      That means your equity is very very low

      Best regards,
