      He buy-in with 40BB and some hands before this he manage one double up vs other short stack player PF both was AI AQo vs AKo were AK hold up.
      I get 3:1 pot odds, what are too small, I know, but I so badly wanted to call, becouse that bet look like miss CBet!

      Hello Maartinss,

      Well, I doubt that I would take any different lines against that kind of stack. Of course if he had a full stack we could consider maybe even taking stabs or floating vs his bet sizing. But while he may even go broke here with just draw I don't like it. Nice hand!

      But of course calling with such a hand it doesn't mean that we just play for the set value. If you plan to play for the set value here only then most likely we rather have to fold it preflop since we ain't getting very good implied odds against his stack.

      Best regards.
