      Villain-shorty fish.I want to get it in vs him pre as i should be ahead of his range.Should I put him directly all-in pre?I dont like the flop but what else can I do but cbet?Now i totally dont like the turn but since he has 1/2 pot size left I think that I cant really get away from the hand.Suggestions?

      I think 3-bet is better than direct shove, so I like your pf game

      I dont like the flop but what else can I do but cbet?
      - you can also c/f or c/rai, but with one overcard I´d also b/c flop

      Now i totally dont like the turn but since he has 1/2 pot size left I think that I cant really get away from the hand
      - I would likely c/f, since I don´t think he would turn worse hands into bluff and that board it is really hard to find hand that at least doesn´t have 40% equity against your hand. And if you´re behind then you only have 5% equity
