      PartyGaming - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $0.49 30/0/0 ~25
      UTG+1: $2.05
      MP: $2.22
      CO: $2.40
      Hero (BTN): $2.07
      SB: $2.00
      BB: $2.28

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has K:diamond: A:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.02, fold, fold, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.12, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.10, fold

      Flop: ($0.29, 2 players) T:heart: K:spade: 4:spade:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.16, UTG calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.61, 2 players) A:club:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.26, UTG calls $0.21 and is all-in

      River: ($1.03, 2 players) 8:diamond:

      How should we play this situation against a short stack? We are not going to give up our TPTK, but there is a potential str and FD on the flop? I probably bet the flop a little light, but we would face the same problem on the Turn with a 2/3 pot size bet on the flop. We give the short stack near perfect odds to call our Turn bet, which puts him AI. :(

      Is the best play to shove on the flop?

      Hello Cooleyman,

      Nope, I would most likely play the same way! Nice hand! :) Don't be result oriented, no point to shove the flop vs his stack while he will have hard time to Call with a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
