      Hello Cooleyman,

      The problem actually is not only the shorty but as well people behind us. If we raise we basically just isolate us against better hands. I'd really be more inclined to fold that in multiway pot and rather make the nitty fold and sometimes even give up the post hand than raise and maybe face some Call from any kind of player behind us who might trap with some set. Or of course the donker.

      Best regards.
